Steam Punk Woman ATC



Steampunk Woman
My first attempt at Steampunk,this is for a challenge at Artful Ideas Group here
This is the explanation here
I did'nt really know where to start,so google'd around and grasped the idea of Steampunk I hope.....this is the outcome !

I found a piece of heavy cardstock that had been sprayed with brown and gold metalic inks to use as my base,then found in my stash the metal wings,watch parts from Ebay,and the round perspect rings to go over her eyes,this is definitly a fantasy piece lol,it just snowballed (thats a joke,looking out the window onto deep snow !)I have to say i did enjoy the challenge,soooo different to sewing ! but nice to get stuck in and get mucky pulling metal watch parts to pieces etc.
The large round watch backing i dropped the cog wheels and bits into then dripped Anita's 3D gloss over it acts as a glue and dry's to a nice glossy finish.

Maybe I will do another looks like i,m grounded here,a foot of snow outside ughhhhh.

And another !
