Who Says Steampunk Has To Be Brown?!

Hello Muses!  I hope you are all doing well!  I have another post for you today with a tutorial.  We all know steampunk is all the rage.  While I love the traditional steampunk colors of brown, cream, black, and metals, I think it's great to shake things up a bit.

I made this pendant using GlobeCraft Memories' bookboard bezels.

This pendant is super easy to put together.  It's quick too!  Here's how to do it yourself!

1.  Pick a large book board bezel.  I used the large teardrop.  Then run it through an embosser to add some texture.  I ran mine through a Cuttlebug using Tim Holtz's "Diamond Plate" embossing folder.

2.  Choose an embossing powder and heat emboss.  I used "Girls' Night Out" and did a total heat set.  You can do a flash heat set for even more added texture.

3.  Embellish to your heart's delight.  I wanted to keep a steampunk look to mine so I used Prima's awesome gears and a Prima light bulb.

It really is a quick and simple project for anyone.  For another steampunk tutorial with some awesome heat embossing, check out the GlobeCraft & Piccolo blog!
