Steampunky Door Hanger

This is my design team project for this months challenge over at Altered Eclectics.....however this project started from a Door Hanger that I received from Fernli Designs and the instructions were to alter it...

I covered the door hanger in backing paper that had some cogs on and after trimming I daubed it with  evergreen bough and red berries distress inks.I also coloured some cogs the same way.
For the centre section I used the drawer from one of Fernli Designs matchboxes.
This I lined with paper that I had embossed with a cog folder and again coloured with the same distress ink.
The four sides of the drawer was dabbed with red and turquoise acrylic paints.
Using the face stamp of a Gibson Girl I stamped and coloured her image and added her to the drawer.

I added several cogs and some brass nuts and clock and other embellishments....also the top section which is actually a handle bracket from an old sideboard...
