Scrapper's Delights - Steampunk New Release Blog Hop

Hello, friends and visitors!

Welcome to the Scrapper's Delights special 
Steampunk New Release Blog Hop!

Janice has just released a fantastic assortment of Steampunk images.
We are celebrating by having a TWO DAY Blog Hop
on Saturday May 28th and Sunday May 29th.

That's not all!
There's also a special Blog Hop sale going on!
Look at this: 

Okay, now it's time to share my project!

I made a fun Steampunk tag using a combination of two of the new images:
the Steampunk Hat and the Pocket Watch.
You'll find both of them in the New Release section HERE.

I began by cutting my tag out of chipboard.
The top was formed into a pocket watch using the Tim Holtz die.
I then embossed the chipboard with the Steampunk Texture Fade.
I adhered a strip of steampunk paper across the bottom,
and added the coloured image.

Then it was just a matter of adding some embellishments.
Using brads, I added several gears. 
I then added a piece of chain to dangle from the tag top to the gear. 
Some paper twine was wrapped around the top,
with some curls left to dangle.
Finally, I added some glossy accents to both the pocket watch and the goggles.

One final look at the texture and dimension:
