Steampunk Altered Frame ~ Imaginarium Designs

Hello Scrappy Frineds! Today, I'm sharing the first of two projects created this month for Imaginarium Designs! It is an altered wooden frame using Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells collection, together with Imaginarium Designs Cogs (regular and tinies) and tiny Steampunk Clock. I purchased the wooden frame at a local craft store for $1 (what a deal) and was able to create something I love with it!
I did lots of fussy cutting of the Graphic 45 papers and layered the fussy-cut elements with the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard to embellish the frame. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst mists to colour the chipboard elements; first, I used Red Hot Poker Orange, then I splattered the chipboards with Midnight Rendezvous Raven. I love the rusted look this gave all the chipboad elements - perfect for this Steampunk frame. Here are some close-ups:
