Another Flirty Flora!

OK.  I know I am getting carried away but I am having fun with her.  This time she has gone Steampunk!  I have raved in the past how much I love Ranger products and anything designed by Tim Holtz - especially his inks and Sizzix dies.  They really lend themselves to grunge and Steampunk.  Here is a list of the products I used:
Hat: Purchased hat with Grunge board flourish and keyhole painted with Distress Crackle Tarnished Brass
Face: Glossy Accents hold her eyelashes on!
Parasol: Mini birdcages cut from grunge board, top is a gear from the big gears die
Trim on dress shoulders and boots is leather cut with Irongate die Grunge board wings at her chest. the heart locket is colored with Perfect Medium and Perfect Pearls.
Vintage piece at the waist is held on with chains from the Lace Chain set as are the Lock and key in her hand.
Skirt top layer center is the large gears with smaller gears all around cut from 2 layers of bonded fabric. Middle and bottom layer is stained with Tea Stain and Walnut Stain inks.
The Base is painted with Dabber and the top is embossed with the Gears embossing folder and colored with Tea Dye and Walnut stain inks.
Her boots are painted on with Dabber Espresso and the gold accents are grunge board as are the soles of her shoes. Her legs are striped fabric - Navy and tan.
Here are some more pics.  Back and side view.  A closeup of her boots (really pleased at how these came out) and Her face.  I need a very small watch sprocket to hang from her choker and my wonderful husband has give me some old wind-up watches to deconstruct.  I am sure I will find what I am looking for.  But for now, she is done.  Now to finish a commision piece for a wedding then on to the next new pattern - this one a Male!
