Gina's Designs DT Project - Steampunk Chest

Happy Friday! I hope you are all well and have some great plans for this weekend. What I have for you today is what I call my yearly steampunk project!  This chest was in my stash and is going to a friend who likes steampunk ( I hope she does!).
 The drawers have one of the plates from the Keys and Plates Set, several gears, and gears that were part of the Steampunk Frame.  The flat metal key from my stash as well as the purple bling on the key plate.

 On the top, I used the medium dressform from the Dressform and Wings Shape Set. The set come with three different sizes!  By the bottom of the dressform is one of the clock hands from the Clock Hands Shapes Set. The Heart with Gears is coming soon to the store. You can substitute with one of the hearts from the Steampunk Hearts set. Also on the front are flowers from my stash, a domino, and Tim Holtz's gear, pen nib and word plate.
 Above you can see the smallest size dressform and wings! The stamp in the right corner was actually found in the bead section at Hobby Lobby. The paper on the entire project is from Recollections - Regent Street.
This air balloon was part of the Steampunk Frame with the gear on the left added from the Gears Shape Set.
 On this side,  you can see I attached part of the Texture Plate - Gears to it.
This is a close-up. I applied different colors of inks to the raw chipboard. In the picture below, you can see that I used the same texture sheet with texture paste. Once the texture paste was dry, I applied different purple inks and Lindy's Sprays over the top of it.
There are several different texture sheets in Gina's Store. Stop by and check them out! Also used on the back was a spring, a plastic light bulb from a key chain, a mini card, metal gear from ButterBeeScraps and flowers from my stash.
