Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #109 - Engineering

It's time for our latest challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and this time our theme is E for Engineering - in other words, our annual Steampunk challenge.

Doesn't Edna look divine in that outfit?
I was longing to use these acrylic cogs and the wooden dragonfly, so I'm afraid there is a distinct lack of snark in my offering, but hey, that's OK (as long as it doesn't happen too often!)

The background is stout grey card (from the back of a notebook) covered in gesso and stamped with dragonflies and cogs then spritzed with gold mica powder shaken up in a spray bottle of water. It gives a lovely sheen that doesn't show on the photo. I smudged a bit of gold foil around the edges here and there too.

The two acrylic cogs were covered with Glossy Accents then sprinkled with gold and copper glitters. When dry, I painted over the word "Create" and the heart using Imagination Crafts Starlight Metallic paint then painted some card with the same paint to die cut the cogs from. A Tim Holtz flashcard and that beautiful  wooden steampunk dragonfly button finish it off.
