Creative Embellishments new Steampunk chippies!

I had so much fun creating this fun and funky tag!  I used Graphic 45's new collection, Voyage Beneath the Sea for my papers and embellished with one of Creative Embellishments new Steampunk chippies.  These are sooo cool!!

I used a Steampunk Mermaid (there are 4 different ones to choose from)  as the centerpiece  of my tag.  I painted her body with Lindy's Frosty Forest Green mist and her hair with Silks and black acrylic paint.  Mist works well as a coloring agent on detailed chippies because it does not clog up the etched lines.  Even thought it's colored, you can still see the plated details on the mermaid's body.  Her top hat is heat embossed with Lindy's midnight gold.  The cogs are embossed with Stampendous aged gold.

I added chipboard seaweed from Creative Embellishments to enhance my underwater scene and finished it off with pretty Petaloo blooms.
 In this photo you can see the dimension I created by using foam strips to pop up the seahorse background and foam squares on the mermaid.
The seaweed is painted with Silks in African Jade and Teal Zircon.

 I adore the steel plated look with the rivets on this mermaid's body.

I used our Steampunk Octopus on this tag,  I adore this chippie!!  I colored his body with Lindy's Creme Brulee Cream and Cosmopolitan Pink.  His hat is painted with black acrylic paint and the gears are heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Gold and the faucet with Aged Silver.
