A Wall Hanging

Been working on a new project over the past couple of days using an amazing image from the uber talented Unky of The East Wind and what's also awesome is that this is this months newsletter freebie!  I have to admit that it took me a while to colour, I'm still trying to get better at faces so this is an ideal image! and to top it off my Copic E00 literally ran dry while I was colouring, I knew it was running out but really!  Anyway got it completed and am pleased with how it coloured up, still need more practice but getting there.  There is a fab challenge on over at TEW at the moment too which is Steampunk/Industrial/Metal. I think I've ended up with a bit of all three.  Steampunk always goes down well in our house and this wall hanging will be off to London when Ria goes back to uni.  I have used a piece of coloured mountboard that is actually an offcut from my local picture framers.  I get it for free as it is pieces he would normally throw away which he has to pay to get rid off so every now and again I pop in and come out with a box full of scraps!  The paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and I have used various Cricut cuts and the sizzix cog die which I have heat embossed several times using black, silver, copper and antique gold powders.  Also embossed the edges of the panel using copper and antique gold powders.  I added the metal clips (which I was sent from America a few years ago and never found the right project till now!) which spell out 'wish', 'dream' and 'adventure'.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion #306 ~ ATG
Creative Card Crew #110 ~ Die Cuts
Crafting For All Seasons #123 ~ Die cuts/punches
As You Like It ~ Favourite Non Card Project (and Why)  I loved making this wall hanging for a couple of different reasons, I love Steampunk (as does my daughter), loved the challenge of colouring the face and love it as it's a gift for my daughter to take back to uni with her.
