#35 Steampunk

Hi there i hope you had a lovely sunny weekend? i know i enjoyed all of that sunshine.

This week at

We are sponsored by 

Who has a fabulous Etsy site with all sorts of lovely detailed images and if you click the link above it will take you straight there!

So this week i was lucky enough to play with the Pirate Nayja

I made her into an A4 image and i have to admit this is the biggest digi i have ever coloured and i was very happy with how she turned out!  And much to my surprise i had a bidding war for who was going to buy her? Amazing! But she is lovely in person and the pictures don't do her justice by any means

ok so i framed her in an A4 frame that i had previously distressed in Forest Moss that gave it a complimentary green hue.


I used the following copic markers to colour her:

Skin E 50, 51, 21, 11
Hair E 70, 27, 29, 79
Skirt/Top R 56, 39, 59
Hat/Bolero and Kerchief  G 24, 94, 99

I added a little glitter pen in strategic places on her skirt and gold highlight to her bolero

I then distressed the edge of the picture with forest moss, Tea dye and Scattered straw

The above embellishment i made out of a couple of feathers topped with two metal leaves coloured with green and added two flowers with another smaller center flower that i then filled the petals with some glitter glue in Kinzite from Martha Stewart and put a big bling y crystal in the middle.  I didn't want to over do it so i decided to leave her as she was and was very pleased with the effect.

I hope you like what i did with my Steampunk image which was a first for me!

Thanks for visiting and even more so for leaving a little bit of love :-)
