Faery Ink New Release - Steampunk Stylist

This fabulous digi is one of today's new releases from Faery Ink.  This funky girl is Steampunk Stylist.  

This is the cover to my steampunk mixed media book, earlier in the week I shared the first page using Clockwork Cupids, also from Faery Ink.

I bought a couple of kid's hardback books from a charity shop.  I choose the bigger one for the project as I wanted to print the images off big and also because the cover had a textured front.  You can just about see the rough glittered areas on the book.  Once covered in black gesso it added to effect

I coloured the image using Graph It markers and added some Wink of Stella clear to the eye glass.
I have added hairdressing charms from my stash.  The mirror is made from a mini wooden frame from The Works coloured with Pebeo Empire Gold Gilding Wax from Dragon's Papercraft in Rugby and a piece of crumpled kitchen foil.  The raffia, key charm & zip are also from my stash.  The keyhole is from The Works and I used a couple of brads as screws.  

I add more gilding wax to the zip and the textured pieces on the cover.  

There are more steampunk images in the shop and more to be released, don't forget to share your fantastic creations in the Faery Ink Facebook Group.

Creative Blessings.  x
