Tera's Steampunk Clara - altered cigar box
I have been in a steampunk mood lately and 'Clara' is a great image for that - she is by Charmaine Flannery and is available as a rubber stamp or a digital image.
I colored her with Koh-I-Noor pencils and then coated her with a sepia clear coat and layered her to a metallic crackle paint layer.
I used the same metallic crackle paint on the edges of the box too and then added flowers, old ribbon - the green one died with green walnut distress spray, gears, a cool little light bulb and finally some pretty brass corners.
I used some old metallic colored drawer pulls for the feet on the box too :)
I found some cool papers from Tim Holtz to cover the box with too - do you see the part behind Clara with the goggles on it - goes well her with her goggles I thought :)
All for today - Take Care
Craftaholic and aspiring artist - I love rubberstamping(coloring with my pencils or copics) altered art, zentangle, locker hook, and my newest venture is encautic wax painting. I am wife to DH (Tom), Mom to DD and DS (Paula and Jack both in college), pet mama to 2 very spoiled pups and 2 rotten kitties, and I work full time as a Critical Care Nurse (for the last 30+ years).
