SCACD - Steampunk Beauty

SCACD has recently  released 15 NEW Digital Images designed by Carmen Medlin for SCACD.  This Steampunk Beauty is just one of them.   There is a bit of something for everyone in this release. Some fantasy, steampunk, wonderland, curiosities and animals to love. You can find just the right image for that creative spark of yours and let your inner artist out to play.

She is colored with Copic markers after printing her out on GP110 cardstock.  A mask was made by printing out another copy of her on copy paper and cutting her out.  The mask was held in place with Post-It Notes while the Tim Holtz layering stencil "Doily" was sponged with Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake Ink for the background.  The mask was removed and this background was then colored with Copic markers V000 and B000.
The corners were punched with Fiskars Corner Circle punch.  They match the lace on her hat and dress.  The edges were distressed with gold pigment ink, then she was matted on dark violet and Bashful Blue cardstock. 
The background design paper behind this piece is from the Papermania Madame Payraud paper stack. This was also colored over lightly with B000 and V000 markers and edged with gold ink.  Deep purple lace seam binding and violet ribbon were added for accents along with some metallic imitation brads.  The Memory Box Mini Gears and Gearworks Border (the border gears were cut apart) were colored with Copics as well before adding for as accents. 
A finishing touch of Mercury Glass Stickles were added to the lace on her dress and hat after matting everything on a piece of pinstriped metallic gold cardstock. 
Be sure to check out all of the new digis as well as this beauty at SCACD.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week.
