Full Steam Ahead

A few weeks ago I won a My Bestie challenge and this image was my choice from Sherri Baldy. You can shop this image with this link --->, img085 Steampunk Fluffy from Sherri's new Fluffy Bestie series. I LOVE HER! 

Boy was she ever fun to color up with my copics.
These are the colors I used for her skin tones.
And these are the colors I used for her leather and metals.
Lastly, these are the colors I used for her clothes and hat. To make sure her little tulle skirt showed up, I used only the lightest colors in the skirt area to make it more translucent.
And I got to stash dive through all of my embellishments that fit the steampunk theme - yes my workspace is always a hot mess (LOL). I couldn't find just the "right" paper to compliment this awesome image, so I made my own in photoshop! I printed out my main paper a few times and then worked the magic with my cuttlebug, Tim Holtz embossing folder and sizzix dies, lining the elements up to the foundation paper - I love that look. Found the perfect ribbon, metals and bling for the theme and cut out a bunch of circles and flowers with my nestabilites, chalking all the edges for definition when layering.
