After days of prepping different portions of this project, I was finally able to complete this alter project today. If you are interested in the faux metal techniques I used on the Diemond Dies Steampunk Gears*, please CLICK HERE and HERE. If you are interested in how I created my name plate at the front with Tim Holtz Grunge Board, please see this TUTORIAL.
The colors I chose to color the two Steampunk Fairy images, which you can download for free on the Digi Page, came from a Jolees Boutique Steampunk hearts stickers pack. The hearts were fantastic, and helped carry the color scheme through the project without distracting from the focal point Steampunk Fairy images.
For the red violet haired Steampunk Fairy, I used a paper from the DCWV One Upon a Time paper stack to paper piece the dress and wings, shading with W1 and W3 directly on the patterned paper to add depth. I used the following Copic colors. Hair: YR00, RV10, RV34, RV66, RV69 and E79. Fishnet stockings and gloves: W1, 3, 5, and 7. Eyes: YG 95, 97. Boots and goggles: C1, 3, 5, 7, 9. Skin: E50, 51, and 53 with R30 for blush. The “skeleton” of her wings were colored with W9. I added a lot of shimmer to the full body of her wings with clear Wink of Stella.
For the purple haired Steampunk Fairy, I used paper from the DCWV Tie-Dyed Stack and used the following Copic colors. Hair: V15, V17, BV08 and 10o. Eyes B34 and B97. Fishnet stockings and gloves: W1, 3, 5, and 7. Boots and goggles: C3, 5, 7, 9. Skin: E 50, 51, and 53, with R30 for blush. I added shimmer to the “skeleton” of her wings and the straps and lace on her dress after I colored them with W9 with clear Wink of Stella.
For both Steampunk Fairies, I added shine and gloss to the lenses of the goggles, the eyes and high boots with Glossy Accents.
I also added my name to the front of the storage unit with my Tim Holtz Grunge Board typeset style letters so that the unit can double as a name sign. You can find the tutorial for how to use those letters from the kit HERE.
