Meet "Annabelle" which can be found here at Make it Crafty.  I've always been drawn to Steam Punk, so I had fun coloring her.

This Monday's  Craft Your Passion Challenge is "Add a little Charm" and the sponsor is The Robyn's Nest.     You can see all of the CYP Design Team's inspiration for you and the challenge rules and deadline HERE.
I colored her with Copics and added shiny silver foil to the skirt "cage" and to the two buckles on her hat and collar.  The key charm was initially meant to go on her waist, but it pretty much disappeared against the folds, so I hung it on a waxed linen cord where it could stand out.  The image panel was set at an angle and off the edge.  A ribbon and bow were added to balance out the sentiment element and the inside uses the alternate side of the DP used on the front.
Specifics of the supplies are listed below.

Simon Says Wed – Anything Goes

  7. ~ginny, she is gorgeous. This is one of my favourite MIC images and you have done her up proud :) Your shading really brings her to life and shows off her exceptional dress. The foil on the cage is a brilliant idea. Great choice of BG paper and the layout is spot on. Love her!
