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
