The Emperor - for SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges

Hi, servus and welcome to the launch of our February challenge over at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges!

The team and I have once more created a bundle of inspirational projects to push your creativity and this is my make for this month's challenge theme, which is - as always -

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

(for more info and to check the makes of my teamies and the few challenge rules, simply click on the link at the bottom of this post that will take you to our challenge blog).

I call this little arch shaped mixed media panel "The Emperor" - and instead of sharing the how-to with you today, I would like to ask you to wait two more days until my next Calico Craft Parts post (that will go live on the third and there will be a link here on my blog that will take you there if you don't want to go to their blog directly), where I will introduce to you "The Empress" - his better half AND a detailed tutorial as always. 

For now I would like to share some close ups of "The Emperor":

As you may already have guessed correctly I have used DecoArt paints and products and Calico Craft Parts for this project.

He looks a bit sad, doesn't he? I am sure he is missing his wife, the Empress. Or maybe his crown is a heavy burden to wear...who knows.

HERE's the promised link to our challenge blog - I hope to see you play along with us soon!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and happy crafting!
