She's Back as Madame Macabre!

I know you've seen her here before, but I had to finish this project that's been on my desk for what seems like a YEAR!

Don't you all have at least one of those things that you look at, and just cannot for the life of you figure out WHAT it needs?????

Well, this is mine, and now it's DONE!

It starts with the Articulated Art Doll Shrine Kit that has the little box piece with a hanger on the back in her midsection. You can put all kinds of trinkets or treasures inside it. I chose to just put a picture of it inside.

The Glasses and Monocles Cut Out and  Steampunk Gears are painted with Antique Bronze, Brushed Pewter and Tarnished Brass Distress Paints.

Here you can see the little insert with the 1 cent stamp picture in it. The owl and the raven are fussy cut to add to the piece.

I painted her arms with my rendition of the gloves worn in that period.

It's hard to see in the other photos, but this is a detail of the niche. The orange and black checkerboard paper line the inside walls of it. I love how you can add all kinds of things in this little cubby and hang your creation on the wall.

 The boots are cut from a leather-like shiny black origami paper. I punched holes in the edges and added tiny brass brads. Then I laced the gold thread around the brads.

The fishnet stockings are just black ink and a background stamp.

I tore a ragged edge around the tulle and used 3 pieces of clock paper fro her undergarment skirt.

The papers are from Graphic 45's collections Steampunk Spells, Happy Haunting and Steampunk Debutante.
