This month we are doing a collaboration with ColourArte. I have created this beautiful steampunk box and used some amazing H2O's and Silks from ColourArte. I created the box out of lightweight chipboard and added some design paper from my stash.
I then chose several steampunk pieces from different collections for the top of the box.
I painted all the chipboard pieces with gesso first, since I wanted these beautiful ColourArte products to stand out.
For the clock and gear pieces I used Silks Acrylic Glaze in Ginger Peach as a base for the gears. I used Olive Vine as a base for the skeleton clock. I then added Twinkling H2O's in the following colors:
Rain Forest, Teal Zircon, Mandarin Citrine, Ginger Peach, Meridian, Periwinkle and Orange Peel. I just kept adding and spritzing with water and dabbing the excess off to get the colors I wanted. On the key I used just Ginger Peach Silks Acrylic Glaze and then I inked it with black distress ink.
On the dressform and wings I used the following Silks colors: Stargazer and Iridescent Green. I also used the following H2O's color: Meridian. I made the wings darker so the dressform would stand out more. I love the color!!
I added metal pieces and flowers from my stash to give it a more girlie feel to it. I inked all the edges of the box and paper with black distress ink.
I just loved working with these products from ColourArte, they are amazing. They work so well with Gina's products! I hope you like my girlie steampunk box.
