OSAAT - Steampunk Girl

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

We have some changes going on with the way we run the challenge, we are now going fortnightly with a prize for the random winner and badge for the Top 3 chosen by the DT.

Challenge #226

Theme 'Anything Goes with Glitter'

The sponsor is StitchyBear Digital Outlet with a 5 image December prize pack. Remember if you use one of the store items you can enter as many times as you want <g>.

This week I am working with an image from the artist BBKakes called Steampunk - 3 pc set.  In the pack there is the image, the image in a frame and the steampunk frame on its own, a really great set.
To begin with I lightened the opacity of the framed image to %30 for the no line colouring technique.
Now I have forgotten to takes pics as I was going along so will just have to mention what I did.  I covered the front and back of the book with black card which I had embossed with an Embossalicious clock folder. These were then painted with blue sparkle acrylic paint and attached to the book.  I then sprayed the front and back with Crafters Companion Silver Varnish spray.

Using a Tim Holtz Picture Wheel die on black card I then painted this with the same acrylic paint as also sprayed it with the silver spray

Next I coloured the image with Promarkers and used glitter for the hat and her clothing.

Another Tim Holtz die - Hardware Findings was used for the lock which I coloured with a red gold Promarker Metallic pen and then covered with Tim Holts Crackle Paint.  You can see the effect here.
To finish off I fussy cut the image and glued her to the front of the book, gems were added to the picture wheel and and a few more gems to the bottom corner.  Matching ribbons were tied to the spiral of the book.

  • Digi - Steampunk - 3 pc set by BBKakes
