Simon Says...STEAMPUNK!

Here we have a Small Box o' Steampunk.  It is one of the boxes out of Tim's Configurations covered in tissue tape and then the inside is papered with gear paper from a DCWV stack called Tattered Time (it's amaazing paper).  Inked the edges with my Copics and then filled the inside with random steampunky goodness.  There is an Art Parts key and shoe complete with white spats(quite dandy!), a bottle cap filled with 7 Gypsies gears and a spinner hand all sealed in with Glossy Accents (and let me tell you haw impatient I was for that to dry!!), plus some ieadology gears and a chain tassel and some random little keys-they might be 7 Gypsies, I've had 'em for a while.  Oh yeah, and a dangly light bulb hanging from a 7 gypsies sticky hooky thing.  And those jump rings were a bear to get through the bulb and then closed onto the hooky thing.  Much fussing and dropping of the ring and then the shoe fell out and the bottle cap came unstuck and then rethinking of the glue for those items and you get the idea!  But all in all quite a cute little box o' steampunk.  Now how it's going to fit back in the configurations box is a horse of a different color... but since it's the only piece of the box I've done, then that's okay!
