31 Days of Halloween
today is also
Leslie's Steampunk Halloween Blog Hop!!!
I am so excited...
I can't think of two themes I like more but combined it's heaven!
So, here is my Steampunk Halloween creation....
I have been so excited about this I could hardly wait to share it with you.
I had soooo much fun making this mask ~ I hope you like!
Stamp Credits: Damask background stamp - Deep Red Rubber Stamps - Stampers Best
This mask started off as one of those plastic masks with the rubber string to hold it on. Well, I stamped some tissue paper with the damask background stamp then painted the tissue paper with the bronze Distress Paint. After it was dry I decoupage it to the mask. I left it to dry overnight.
Once it was dry the fun part began. I added the tinted Dresden Trim around the edge then added the glittery bat trim and Cinnamon Stickles around the eyes. While that layer was drying I made several copper rosettes (it's plain white copy paper I painted with the bronze paint.). I also painted several chipboard gears from Leaky Shed with Distress Paints in various colors.
After the mask had dried I began adding the rosettes; gears and glittery bits to the mask in addition to the feathers and Steampunk charms. Finally I added some Halloween fibers and the stick which is actually two Halloween sucker sticks glued together.
It took a while but I LOVE how it turned out.
Here are more pics from various angles.....
Now all I need is my copper corset and flower black lace skirt and I'm ready for the
Steampunk Halloween Ball!
