A Steampunk Witch's Hat...A MMCC 8 38

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, September 19, 2013 @ 8:55 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! So happy the weekend is nearly here! I've been looking forward to this weekend for a long time because April will be arriving early Friday morning and will be visiting us until Tuesday morning. April, her Mom and I will be working on her wedding invitations all day Sunday so Scott and I have been busy getting things together to make the production run smoothly :) Both fingers and toes crossed!

It's time for an all new Mixed Media Color Challenge! I'm so happy to see so many beautiful and inspiring projects in the gallery week after week. It seems as though many crafters from around the world are enjoying creating outside the box! For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the following color combination: Lavender, Light Green and Gray.
In celebration of Halloween, I made a Steampunk Witch's Hat:
To begin, I embossed craft foil using an embossing folder then covered a paper mache witch's hat, applied black alcohol ink then adhered the feather trim around the perimeter. I topped it with a little black crow and a funky industrial like birdcage trinket:
I stamped the BOO sentiment from Trick or Sweet then framed it with an altered metal frame:
I also added another sentiment from Trick or Sweet which I stamped on a doily made using a die from Die-namics Blueprints 6:
I surrounded the sentiments with other metal trinkets, flowers, leaves and a die cut flourish:
I completed it with a shimmery metallic bow, metal gear and flower embellishment:
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit ~ I hope I have inspired you to mix things up! Please hop on over to A Mixed Media Color Challenge for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration from Sue!
Be Sweet ;)
