I don't usually submit a project for the 3D challenge at SanDee and amelie's Steampunk Challenge blog. This month's theme, Underwater Steampunk, got me thinking about 20,000 Leagues under the Sea and the Nautilus...and I remembered that, before Christmas I'd bought a spindle-shaped bauble that was going to be an airship but would make a good submarine...
Then I put it all together. Cosmic Shimmer glue held the die cuts onto the body of the sub, and Milliput stuck the 3D elements. (I brushed some metallic mica powders over the Milliput while it was still soft ). Last of all I gave it a wash of grungy acrylic paint, stuck on some dew drops (I coloured one red and one green as navigations lights) and the Naughty Lass was good to go. (May God Bless Her, and All Who Sail in Her!)
Oh, and as I DEFINITELY got messy, what with the paint, Mod Podge, alcohol ink etc., I'm also entering this into the Anything But A Card Blog Challenge.
Thanks for visiting - hope you enjoyed!
