It's my turn to host the challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays!!! The challenge is Inspired by a Book (or by the book cover art). I had this book sitting on my nightstand and was just inthralled by the cover art!
I started with a black background. I wanted to make something that looked like the gears, so I used a Tim Holtz Timeworks Mask and sponged ink onto my patterned paper. For the leaves, they're cut out of the Broken China Cardstock with the Tattered Leaves Die. Then I ran them through the Cracked Texture Fade for texture. They are sanded and then inked with Black Soot Ink. I still didn't think they looked metal enough. So I sprayed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist. While they were wet, they were easy to curl up. I think they look just perfect! Prairie Fairy Designs has two images that seemed to go with that key perfectly! So I used Key to my Heart and Vintage Lock & Key and coloured then with Copic Markers (colours listed below). Here's some detail shots:
I put Crystal Stickles on all the flowers and dyed my hemp twine with Black Soot Ink.
The prize for the challenge is $20 to spend in the Prairy Fairy Designs store! So, head on over to Fairy Fun Fridays and play along!
