CC3C Challenge #2 and beyond: Distress Glitter

Tea anyone?

I've been playing with found objects to create a little's a little steampunk robot that serves tea. I enjoy a bit of afternoon tea time now and again, and I had several challenges before me. So my lil robot will be "serving tea" at these challenges:

CC3C here and special thanks to the Funkie Junkie Boutique for sponsoring this challenge!

SanDee and Amelie's Steampunk Challenge "heavy metal" here.

And over at the Inspiration Emporium the challenge here is to "celebrate". One of my favorite ways to celebrate is to go out to high tea with friends.

Oh look, the dancing girl is coming to tea!


I used distress glitter on the robot's head, and added jump rings for curls. I also used it around the clock face and inked it a bit, and on the tea time banner.

A bit more detail and you can see the "steam curls"coming off the hot tea.

Here is what you get when you find things like dominos, little light bulbs, clock faces, binder clips...and you think like I do. My little tea time robot will be heading off to an exchange with my art group.

Hope you have enjoyed some tea while reading through this!
