Steampunk Box

The Bombshell Design Team was challenged this month to create a "Hot and Steamy" project, Steampunk that is, using Bombshell images by our guest designer, Ms. December,  Torrey.

     I chose to use the Mi Amor image to work with for my project and added loads of cogs and gears to create a box for all my steampunk embellishments. The rings around the images eyes reminded me of the goggles that seem to be very popular with the steampunkers right now.  I think my favorite part is the little watch stopper I used as a handle to open the box.

      I didn't get a side view of this box, but I used a spiffy gear embossed paper to cover them and it came out super fantastic.   The wooden box came from the dollar store and was first covered with distress inks before I began adding layers and embellishments.  A number of the gears came from Michael's, where I used a coupon to get a small bag which contained quite a few gears in different shapes and metals.   The clock face actually came from an old alarm clock my son disassembled and I just went through my boxes of metal bits to find other parts and pieces.
