With a Heart of Gold

Hi everyone,

Today showcasing a little fun DT work at Just Inspirational Challenges. This week's challenge is sponsored by Mitzi, the creator of Stamps By Aurora Wings and the theme is make it "Girly". Check out more of her stamps at AuroraWings etsy shop.

The image I'm using today is called: Steampunk Girl w/doll (just click the link)

I altered a journal with scrapbooking paper (Tim Holtz I believe)
then ripped up some scraps of K&Company distressed the edges and 
hand wrote a fraction of a Steampunk poem I found called: 
Ticking Lullaby by DJ White Spirit. 
I colored my image with Copic markers. This image took me a while to color but
it was fun doing it. Loved each stage as it sort of came alive.
Here's a closer look. Probably would of had better pictures in the morning.
It's a little hard to tell but there is Gold Copic Atyou pens on the goggles
and on the lace on her hat.
The pearls in her hat were done with VivaDecor Pearl pen.
The Jolee's Boutique Steampunk stickers 
I got at a really good deal at TheStampRoom,
they were on clearance.

Thank you so much for stopping by
Don't forget to link your project at
I hope you liked my project took me all weekend and a day
especially having to stop so many times.
