This blog has been very quiet of late, but I've been busy elsewhere. To avoid confusion, I keep my Stampin" Up! projects apart from my Altered Art, but sometimes they cross over. I came across the pattern for a self-closing box some time ago and a couple of weeks ago I shared it on YouTube.
The original was a pretty, feminine version that my mother-in-law's Mothers' Day gift was presented in - but I couldn't resist a making a Steampunk version.
Then I covered it with gold card that I'd grunge up with acrylic paint and embossed and die cut. The mask is made of air-drying clay. I'm putting this into the following challenges -
Sandee & amelie's Steampunk blog challenge - Gear it up
Altered Eclectics - ATG
Please do check out my YouTube channel and my SU blog (Tuppence Coloured) - I'd love you to visit.
