|Before: Polystyrene dress forms, chipboard wings and wooden spools|
I've had the dress forms sitting in my craft cupboard for a couple of years just waiting for the right project.
I'm a big steampunk fan and really enjoyed making this. Embossed foil tape with sizzix clock, tim holtz diamond plate and riveted metal texture fades, gear brads under unembossed tape and covered the dress form. Painted foil with black gesso then rubbed some off to highlight the texture. Added charms, and gave Sam one of my frozen charlotte heads I'd bought from Mario's shop on Tim's cruise last year. Bibi's of course had to have some bling on it - I'm sure she'll add some more when she's at home :)
Decided mine didn't look quite finished so added a beadcap and lightbulb.
