Hi everyone!  Gabrielle here with you today to share a Steampunk style eye-glass case I made using a variety of Bo Bunny's gorgeous mixed media products and one of my favorite wood embellishment collections called Ironworks.

Have you tried these beautiful new lasercut chippies?  I was lucky enough to get my hands on this stunning butterfly chippie, they have such intricate cut-work, love them! So I decided to make this, and a lovely scroll from the Ironworks wood accents collection the centerpiece of my OTP project.  I thought it would be nice to make a video tutorial up to show how this thing went together....so grab a cup of coffee (or tea) click on the arrow below and enjoy!




I just love the way the Pearlescents adhere so well to almost any surface, I didn't even have to pre-coat my piece with Gesso!  Here are a couple of views of this project from other angles...

This is the backside of the glasses case, you can see the nice texture I got using the Cascade Stickable Stencil with a combination of  Licorice, Graphite and Chocolate Perlescents streaked across it.

I finished my design with some Bo Bunny Trinkets and Mocha Jewels.
