Metallic Leaves

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!
