Steampunk Winged Dressform

Stamp and Show Some Steampunk, and I gave myself a bit of a monochrome challenge as well. Tag is cut with Sewing Room Bigz die, embossed folder from Cuttlebug. Inked in Distress Walnut Stain, then run through Distress Embossing Pad and Distress Embossing Powder in Walnut Stain added to hit the raised areas.

Wings cut from Heart Wings Bigz die from Grungeboard, coloured with Pumice Stone Distress Stain and Tea Dye Distress Stickles. Attached with Mini Attacher. Gears and spinner from Idea-ology line.

I struggled with whether to do something with the "head" or not and ened up leaving it as is. Putting a button or a word key in that place moved the focus to that pieces, and I wanted the piece to remain more abstract.


  1. This caught my eye on the Simon Says Stamp and Show site and it looks fabulous close up. I think you're right to leave the head to as it looks fantastic as it is.
    Really love your Halloween shadow box too - amazing amount of detail.

  2. Hi Ron. Your steampunk style embossed dress form with wings is stunning. Love the techniques and the design. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
