Romantic Steampunk Lady

I had some spontaneous fun with this month's kit from Alpha Stamps, which had the theme of romantic women.  I was not sure what to make with all these goodies, but I think I put them to good use, along with a few other treasures I had on hand. Here is a link with all the fun stuff I used.  

I love using transparencies.  Here I used one along the border.  The edges are hard to see, and I love that you can see texture from the lovely embossed paper peeking through.  That paper is to die for by the way, I altered it quite a bit with inks, stains and even a bit of black gelato.

The skirt of my romantic steampunk lady is made from a paper doily that was distressed with inks and stain.  I added a few steampunk elements from the awesome selection of collage sheets at Alpha Stamps.

Finally, I added a bit of metal and junk.  I just can't seem to finish off a project without finding some way to add some metal or a random trinket.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!
