Miss Mirabelle

Hey Everyone!

I have done a new try on some steampunk but i don`t quite know if i succeeded. I think you`ll have to be the judge of that, lol.

Before i continue with this post i would like to to ask you...I have been mada aware of that it is difficult to enter my site or that it is loading very slow. Can you please leave me a message if you too are having this experience? Thanks for your help.

I`m not sure if it shows too well but i have used a copper metallic pen on some of the details. And i think it looked kinda cool, lol. The image is called "Miss Mirabelle" and it is available in the Crafts and Me Store

The colours i have used for this image are:

Black, Cool Grey #5,4,3, Prussian, China blue

Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan, Cocoa, slate

Chestnut; Terracotta, Spice, Slate, Plum,

Copper metallic pen, Gold metallic, Powder blue, Arctic blue, Glacier blue (flex-marker)

Other colours used:
Green, Tea green (eyes) Berry red, Shale (lips) Cool grey 3,4,5, black (make-up)

All the papers are from the new collection from Prima called Printery. This fragment i made by gluing the image on the backside of a clear fragment. The image is cut out from one of the sheets in the Prima collection. I just love how it turned out.

This metalflower i have had for a long time. Don`t remember where i bought it, but it is available in silver colour at the Crafts and Me shop.

These cogs are from Tim Holtz. As is the die cut clock.

As you can see of the pic i have painted the bigz die with crackle paint. I have used Rock candy for this one. Afterwards i inked it with Distress ink, Vintage Photo to fill in the cracks and make it look old. Then i dried off the excess ink with a cloth. On the same pic you can see better the copper colour i have used on the details. I also coloured the panel behind the image, in the same colour.

The wings has such a gorgeous mosaic so i covered them with clossy accent so make them look glasslike.

I have just received my first package of Flex-Markers and i used Glacier blue for some spots on the wings and i also coloured the background with it. My goodness what fantastic Markers these are. It`s almost like using a paintbrush only with more control of it. Allmost can`t wait to get my next shipment, lol.
