Trying New Techniques - Finnabair Style

I treated myself for Easter to Finnabair's  Art Transformations Imagine Course - which I thoroughly recommend. 
I decided to decorate a 14cm MDF Circle .
 Crafters Companion embossing folder was my starting point.Various Dies were used by TimHoltz and Sheena Douglas. plus ply numbers, and various embellishments including found items from my stash.


I stamped several images of Sheena Douglas' Steampunk Woman and used one as a guide to check position and size. I then coloured one of my other images with Copics and sealed.  
 I had a blast layering and colouring this project and for a first attempt am happy with the finished project. It would be unfair to add any more details as a courtesy to  Finnabair.
