steampunk 'shadow-box-mirror'

Hello and good morning to all of you out there in blogland.
I'm late again thus just a quick post .-(
Today I'm sharing a steampunk project again, a framed mirror.

flying man large SW R14001
small airbike large SW R14002
from the plate large men PLATESW167  

multi medium matte CH-HSP24927
acrylic paints
Tim Holtz embossing folders pocket watches and steampunk SX-TH657195
diamond plate and riveted metal  SX-TH657848
found objects
metal embellishments from prima marketing  

I purchased the framed mirror in a kind of €-store.
- primed with gesso

- embossed cardstock with several embossing folders, cut the cardstock in pieces and glued them down onto the frame

- covered with acrylic paint bronze and tinted with black paint

- painted the die cuts and metal embellishments with acrylic paint quinacridone gold, heat embossed them with distress embossingpowder vintage photo and added a wash with bluegreen acrylic paint, die cuts were sponged around the edges with black soot

- the images were stamped separately and colored with different distress inks and a waterbrush resp. watercolor
backed them with two coats of matte medium to make them less bendable

- everything was glued down with glossy accents

Sorry for being so short. I hope you enjoy your visit and have a great day.

Thanks so much for looking, hugs, Suzanne x
