As I've mentioned before, I love steampunk!  I also love Prima Art Alchemy Magic Wax!!

For this card, I decided to give my background some texture by first using an embossing folder to create the brick wall, and then adding Reeves Modeling Paste to them.  Onto that I pasted a ripped sheet of DCWV corrugated paper.  My embellishments are Solid Oak Inc., Ribtex, Webster's Pages, Pima Finnabair, Tim Holtz and Artc.  I painted the whole lot with Bo Bunny black Gesso, and the Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Wax (Brushed Iron), and on the feathers, I added Opal Magic Wax (Blue Velvet).  I also decided not to fully cover the Gesso with the Metallique Wax, but rather, to let some black show through, to add a bit more depth and 'shadow'.  I am LOVING playing with this stuff!

I have used a pre-coloured KennyK digi, called Helga Frost.

Thanks so much for popping by to have a look!
