Steampunked SolitaireHeavymetal

 Hi Everyone
 I am so excited. I have some fantastic news. I am delighted to be part of the talented Design Team at CS Designs. This is my first piece for Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent challenge . Anything Goes / Heavy Metal... I love the original artwork and sentiments that Chris creates. They are  truly beautiful  and  inspiring. The quality and detail are exceptional.
      OK! I really enjoyed this challenge. The image is called SolitaireHeavyMetal. The first thing I did was to visit  my husbands shed. Where amongst other things like cobwebs and spiders ugh!!!! I found the nuts and washers which are now recycled onto this card. I also used brads a small clock hand and various dies from my crafty stash. I printed the nuts and bolts mini  background image onto acetate and placed it onto copper mirri board. Coloured all three Solitaire's with promarkers and prisma pencils, cut and decoupaged the larger image.
