Gold and turquoise steampunk Easter tag

When I finished yesterday my blue and silver steampunk Easter tag, I couldn't stop and started to make another one with another colour combo, the gold and the turquoise. I really liked my yesterday tag and I was really satisfied with the result but I have to tell you that I just loooove this one. 

The tag was cut out from chipboard and I put a layer of white gesso on both sides. When it was dry, I painted the tag with a mixture of Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass.

The edges were inked and smudged with Ground Espresso and Black Soot Archival inks, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Crayons and gold acrylic paint.

The rabbit was cut out from chipboard then I glued the gears on the surface. When I was ready with this, I painted the whole rabbit with Walnut Stain Distress paint. In the end, I spritzed the tag with Walnut Stain paint with a fine brush.

Then the gold paint was next. At this point, I realised that the gold went everywhere even to the wholes and dents. So when it was totally dry, I again put a layer of Walnut Stain on the surface, then quickly I started to wipe it off.

The text was heat embossed with Ranger Potting Soil embossing powder.
