For my new technique I worked with Essential Gelatos by Faber-Castell . I loved working with them and want all of the colors now ! LOL!  They are very creamy and blend so well . I was able to layer colors on multiple surfaces .
I used the Steampunk Shape Set from Gina's Designs.
The Gelatos  cover the raw chip board  so well . I base colored all the pcs. with black
and then added the silver or gold. Then to finish it off I watered down the white and let
it drip down the pcs.

I recycled a ribbon spool for the base .
I colored it with the Black and highlighted with the silver. 

The flowers are from Paper Mart. They started out white,
I colored them with a Teal Copic marker. Then I started layering the
Gilatoes on with a paint brush and water.

I added a little bit of black tulle  and I did a few flowers with the  black, white and silver.

I layered the wings to the dress form.

Your next stop on the hop is Dawn   If you get lost along the way, here is a list
