S.S. Edison

I love to steampunk.
 I created this miniature electric balloon for Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge.  
Transparent was the theme for March's challenge.
The cage for the electric balloon (lightbulb) is made of spare necklace chains that I cut and jump-ringed together,  Embellishments also include some junk jewelry I had.
The flag is free from PicMonkey.
I love that you can just click "create" to use their graphics for non-picture projects.
Gears were made from chipboard using my Silhouette and then embossed with copper and gold powders to give a metallic effect.
Basket to carry passengers is a a small black box that I painted black and cover with metallic edging that I got at Hobby Lobby not too long ago.

I have definitely caught the Steampunk bug!
I love the embossing, the metallic rubs, the macabre undertones, the metal, the gears...Oh! I love it all!

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It really makes my day!

Sorry about the word verification--my blog was hijacked not too long ago, so now I have to take robo-cautions.
