Steampunk for TioT's

The new challenge  over at Try it on Tuesdays
is Steampunk/Mechanical/ cogs/ wheels etc.
lots of ways to interpret and choices for  this theme, I went for steampunk.

Please pop over for all the details and see how the  girls  interpreted this theme,
We are also sharing some news this week at TioT's.

I started off with this old wood frame.
It soaked up the paint and inks. I also added some stencilling for added texture as well as some Frantage embossing powders.

I stuck down some die cut wheels and cogs etc.
They were also inked and smeared with gilding wax.  I had the metal bits and pieces sent by a craft friend ages ago, they were just what I was looking for to add a bit more detail.  Mr Frog is a digital image [Mischief circus] and the words were added with the help of the computer 
A few splatters of black ink and I decided to call it a day.

This is one of my work in progress photos with the cuppa close by as usual.

Thank you all for calling in ,  your visit and comments are always appreciated.

If you called in for T day, please scroll down to my earlier post.

  8. The steampunk frog looks terrific. I'm also impressed as to how you made the die-cuts look metallic-rusted.
    Nice frame too - and not forgetting the owl.

  9. Fabulous Steampunk project, I love Mr Frog and the metallic inks and embellishments.

  10. The froggie in his top hat is super. It really makes the piece unique Yvonne. You did a great job making all the gears look old- well actually how the whole piece looks like a cool old metal piece of art.:) Hugs-Erika

  11. Well, considering that it's a frog and I really don't like frogs, this is pretty awesome! I love the texture and the way you combine your original with digital! Hugs, Chrisx

  12. I love that frog Yvonne! fab steampunk piece and its so clever how you combine the two techniques


  13. This is both beautiful and very different. I really like the colors you chose and the gears and cogs. Your texture shows up well, too.

  14. Your wood frame is a fabulous base layer for many projects. Love the cute frog, and your new header.

  15. I love Mr Frog and he looks fabulous against that lovely metallic background. A great piece.

  16. I saw this awesome page at TioT and came here in search.

    Mr. Frog makes me smile ... every time I look ... :D The background with gears and grunge is stunning. I do digital too and am really impressed at how 3D Mr. Frog looks! I had no idea this was a hybrid page.
