Steampunk Bestie

It time for another challenge at Meet at the Scrappers Corner

Our challenge is anything goes but you must use a Besties Image By 
Sherri Baldy which you can find Here

The image I used is

Here is my DT project for this challenge hope 
you all like it 

I really enjoyed making this I have been wanting to try mixed media for awhile
now so when I got this Image I thought it would go perfect.

Recipe for this make

1x Sherri Baldy Image

1x Canvas
Some Gesso and Texture Paste the texture paste I have is home made I got the recipe from

I used some cut outs I did on my silhouette instead of buying chip board and I also
made my own stencils with my silhouette using plastic folder dividers make stencils so cheap

All the bit and pieces I used was just from stuff I had lying around and stuff I found when 
cleaning out my daughters room lowland I also used some wood embellishments
and resin flowers, lace, hinges,cheap flowers from bargain shop, buttons, charms, gip rock 
and mesh keychain and there is probably other bits I have missed but you can use anything.

I coloured the image with copics
Skin: E000,E00,E21,E11,E04
Hair: E29,E25,E21
Dress,feathers and shoe bows: BG70,BG72,BG75,BG78
Hat,bat wings, socks and belt: W0,W1,W3,W5,W7
Shoes, Goggle lenses and belt: C0,C1,C3,C5,C7
Flower: R89,R85,R83
Leaves: G02,G05,G07
I also used a coat of Mod Podge on the image to protect from the sprays

The glimmer mists I used are
Tattered angel glimmer mist Trunk Bay
Perfect pearls mists Cappuccino
Tatter angel Glimmer mist Snow Queen
and a brown glimmer mist I made from paint and Iridescent Medium
and I also used Distress ink Walnut stain to darken

And then I used flat back gems to give it a sparkle 

If anyone has any questions please ask
