Colorista Dark Victorian Steampunk Star Book!

Hello to all.  There are some fun Spectrum Noir Colorista Dark pads launching soon on Hochanda.
Sharing a sneak peek of one of my samples featuring the Victorian Steampunk range, this consists of a paper pad, a tag pad and a bookmark pad.
This project is a decorated star book.
Below are some pictures of the book, so that you can have a look at what is included in this fabulous collection.

Above is an overview of the star book to give you an idea of the shape created.

Materials used for this project:
Spectrum Noir Colorista Dark-
Victorian Steampunk Pad, Tags and Bookmarks
Spectrum Noir Metallic Pencils
Crafter's Companion Black Matt Card, Kraft Card, 
Various Crafter's Companion Embossing Folders
Various Sheena Douglass Time Traveller Dies
Sara Signature Cogs and Gears Dies
Pebeo Gilding Wax
Various Crafter's Companion Sentiments
Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder
Ribbon and all other steampunk detail are from my stash.

This is the first page of the project.  So much fun with design and detail.

Another page featuring the steampunk tags.  These really are stunning and colour like a dream with the Spectrum Noir metallic pencils.  I have used both embossing folders and stencils to create the background detail.  Plus fabulous die cuts.

This page is my personal favourite, don't ask me why!  I love the depth, detail and textures created.  I also used Pixie Powders on the embossing.  The colours are fabulous in reality!

One of the 6 x 6 papers on this page.  The images really are exquisite!

Another fun page with tags.  Again loads of embossing, stencil and detail.  I adore these sentiments.  They are from the previous stamp range by Donna Ratcliffe for Crafter's Companion.

The final double page spread featuring the steampunk bookmarks.  Also loads of embossing, die cut, stamping and detail.  The Pixie Powders were liberally applied!

This is one of my all time favourite projects.
I absolutely loved making this. It took forever but was so worth it!
I hope you like it too!

Happy crafting fun to all!
