Steampunk Queen

It was a close friends birthday a few weeks ago.  She won't mind me telling you that she is a little bit eccentric and amongst the loves in her life are football, (the not so mighty O's) and steampunk designs.  She wishes she was brave enough to start dressing in the fabulous clothes but in her own words "being a lady of a certain age, I'd look ridiculous".   Her love of steampunk inspired my choice of birthday card for her this year.  I found the perfect image whilst looking at the work of Heather Valentin (aka Lacy Sunshine Stamps).  The stamp is called Queen of Hearts. This stamp reminded me of my friend so I took a risk and coloured the hair grey, I really think it works. 

Promarkers used:
Skin tones: apricot, saffron, vanilla and blush
Lips and eye shadow: magenta 
Hairice grey 1,2 and 3
Redburgundy, Cardinal Red and Crimson 
Greyice grey 3,4 and 5.
Goldsleigh bells 2013 limited edition colour
Green: pine and grass
Red: hot pink, ruby and magenta
Hunkydory adorable scorable
Centura Pearl Snow White 
Sentiment: Hunkydory
