Let me begin by saying, I LOVE steampunk!  I love the obvious 'cold' metal effect, but also the clothing style!  If only.....  

I have included lots of pics in this post, because I tried out my new Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Wax, and I thought I'd take a few 'progress pics' to show the transformation.  I also wanted to add some close-ups of the details on the card.

I began with Rowena, a Paper Shelter digi, and coloured her with ProMarkers.  I then dug out everything that could possibly be used with her:

I chose 2 colours of foiled cardstock by DCWV, which I embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  I also used Tim Holtx gears and compass; Bo Bunny brads; KaiserCraft wooden embellishments; an Art C metal corner (bottom right); a Ribtex metal key; and Prima metallic beads.

Then came the messy part!

And then some finishing touches:

I LOVE how the resin turned out!
