Over at Sandee and amelie's steampunk challenge the challenge this month is -
"Three's my lucky number!"
This means you have to either incorporate the number "3" itself or make "three of a kind" an important factor of your creation. That could mean to add three identical gears as embellishments for example....or repeat the same stamped image three times...or create three visually connected objects that form a trio...just to name a few possibilities
...the 3 has to be an obvious element of your design.
I try to follow the number 3 in my creative work after a florist friend said that when arranging flowers you should always work with an odd number and she recommended 3 as a good amount...Apparently the number 3 is quite pleasing to the majority of people!
And so I was thrilled to have a chance to work with a favourite number!
I used a piece of cardboard (plenty around after Christmas!!!) and I stuck some torn embossed card over parts of it before covering in Decoart Crackle Paint.
You can see the gorgeous crackle here!
I got several wooden gears and cogs and painted them with Quinacridone Gold Decoart Paint and stamped them with a script stamp in Potting Soil Archival ink before dabbing them with a little Decoart Media Fluid Acrylic paint in Raw Umber
I used Tim Holtz Salvage Stickers and Label Letters stickers to make the words "Is 3 the lucky number"
And I used a photo from the Salvage Stickers set
Stuck to the card background is some melange tissue wrap
Here I used some Remnant rubs transfers
A white organza ribbon was attached to the card with a bronze brad
Black ink was spritzed over the card - I love this speckled effect
Please come over and see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you!
Hope you will come along and join in the fun!
