Steampunk Box Frame

Good Afternoon Crafters
Today I am sharing a steampunk project that I have created using a box frame.
I started off by first painting the box with black gesso before stencilling the sides with cogs and gears stencil with modelling paste and adding texture to the front of the frame. I then gave the frame a coat of IndigoBlu Pheasant Bronze and highlighted with Kingfisher Blue to give a tarnished look. I then added the metal frame to the top of the frame and added the words "Time Travel", a key and a safey pin to the front of the frame.
For the inside I cut out a piece of card board and covered with map patterned tissue paper, I then stencilled cogs and gears by using an A4 mask. Once this was dry I gave it a light colouring of pheasant bronze with a baby wipe. Once this was dry I then highlighted the cogs with kingfisher blue.
Once all this was dry I added the clock face and hands, cogs, air balloon which are from Things to Alter. All were coloured with Hot Cocoa before highlighted with kingfisher blue.

The picture below shows the inside of the frame.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Until next time Happy Crafting!
