Steampunk Cameo Woman - Gear Head Lady

We had Spring for about 2 days, and now it's Summer....81 degrees before noon.
 
I've been trying to work in the garden and loving every minute of it, until it gets really hot...I'm not a hot and humid person. So why do I live in the Midwest???
 
But last night I got to sit down and relax and play.
 
 
This is a Stand Up Steampunk Cameo Woman from Retro Cafe Art Gallery's great Coffee Break Designs...I call her Gear Head Lady!
 
The Antique Brass Large Key with Wings is such a cool piece to just sit with the Lady.
 
 
I base paint with a light colored Fresco Paint and then added purples and blues with foam squares blending as I go.
  
 
 The Gear Gem from 7Gypsies fit perfectly here..

 
 The cool Tim Holtz Heart Charm is just glued in place....love it! The base is stamped with Majestic Blue Versafine Ink. The contrast is amazing!

 
I've had these Mambly Screen Print Rub Ons for years...and they were a bit fragile...but they were perfect for this lady. I cut several of them apart to create her eye, necklace, and design on her shoulders and head.
 
The White Sharpie pen filled in spots and added some dots on the painted Gears.
 
Check out the links and get going! This Steampunk lady is so fun and easy to put together!!!
 
Take care and be well...
 
Linda
