Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #50 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome, 
we have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
and I've embraced my love of steampunk and created this angel punk fairy...
using the Flick & Fringe kit, I've used acrylic paints throughout,
along with the female face stamp, which I have added extra detail with coloured pencils and a hint of copper in her eyes.Check out her wing earring.
I've used the substrate fairy wings to make her an angel punk.. i under painted the mdf in gold ink/paint, and added gears, cogs and had a lot of fun with the cosmic embossing effect, still one of my favourites... 
It might not be obvious at first, that I used the crew neck top piece, but disguised the edge with this metal hardware and ceramic rose. The corset was made from some leather paper, jump rings, and eyelets.

I also took some time to finish off the back of her with gold polka dots to finish off the metallic look.

I thought I would enter my project into...

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #49 ~ Sketch

Good morning and welcome, 
we have a new challenge on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
It's a sketch challenge and I took a very mixed media route with my card.
I started with some old book pages to represent part of the sketch. 
I've had this mica glitter for years and decided to adhere it to my butterfly which I undercoated with a little gesso and then white paint, yum!


 I used some texture paste through the rose stencil, when that was dry I added a little paint in greens and blues.
 To finish I've painted the Amazing word with my favourite gold ink, which I also used to add a few speckles on the background of my card.
