Clockwork Princess

I recently came across a very cool website with steampunk challenges...oh, be still my heart! And felt right at home. I missed their very first challenge, but am ready for this one: Fairytales into a Steampunk World.

I have an upcoming art swap and the challenge was to make a ribbon doll, and that is how the Clockwork Princess came to be.
As you can see she is a real metal head all geared up and ready to roll. Ideas are always spinning in this gal's head!
Started off with a Graphic 45 image from the Steampunk Debutante line and layered it onto cardboard. I stamped the face and added that on. A bit of color using my Distress Markers, and buttoned her camisole right up.
Cinched in her waist for that Victorian hourglass figure, added the ribbon skirt and a bit more lace to bring it all together...
She needed some jewelry, so she now has 2 bracelets made of jump rings and washers. Jewelry is always useful in the steampunk world, and these are no exception - one never knows when a washer will be needed.
Details of the ribbon skirt with all kinds of nuts, washers, cogs tied into the skirt. This princess is ready for whatever may come her way.
The adventures of the Clockwork Princess have only begun!


  1. She really is a beauty, Maura!

    Love how you made her a Steampunk princess, waiting for her prince to come. (Hope she has no heart of steel ;)
