SOC Week 6

It is the last week of SOC and to put it bluntly I was stumped !
This weeks colours are orange+orange+blue.

I just could not get into these colours, hence the late entry combined with the fact hubby was working from home, again! in our dining/craft/office room. That should be craft room first I think as these days it's very rarely used as dining room.

Any how, I'm just delaying the inevitable, back to the task at hand.

 It's not  a dress form this week but still a fashion item.
Many moons ago I made a steam punk type hat and decided to revisit it.
I made a template, then cut it out again in orange basil card stock to create a texture base, I then stamped and heat embossed a leaf pattern onto the shape.
The hat was glued together and left to dry, meanwhile I die cut some cogs and sorted out a piece of blue ribbon (or two) along with pre made white flowers. The ribbon and trim was added just above the rim of the hat and the flowers layered up and attached with a glue gun.
Orange spray ink was added to the white flowers.  Indigo blue treasure gold added to the cogs which were then stuck on  to the hat. A little distress ink in dark blue was added to the edges to create a distressed look.

Here are a few more photos.

That's it I'm off to catch up on last weeks visits and make a start on this weeks.
Thank you to our host for running the SOC and I look forward to next years challenge, I've thoroughly enjoyed the videos and visiting all of the other entry's which if you don't know by now are over at Twinkle Twinkle like a Star. 
 see you all next year.
