Love with a Steampunk Owl

Hello everyone,

I have a card today featuring the fun Owl from Chocolate Baroque's new Steampunk Birds set.  I plan to give this to my husband on his next birthday as he really likes the steampunk designs. 

 

The background is Turquoise Dylusions Ink which I stenciled over with TCW Gear stencil.    I stamped the cog fragment from Steampunk Butterfly with Peacock and Walnut Distress Inks.    Love is from Artistic Expressions.   The Owl was embossed with copper powder and coloured with Tombow markers.  I carefully cut him out and popped him up on the background. 




Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
Shirley

A striking combination Shirley & I love the way you've used the cog fragment from Steampunk Butterfly. The Distress Inks really combine well with the Dylusions allowing their difference in colour to provide texture . Your owl is rather splendid & I love the dimension in those wings.

Shirley - another impeccably colored masterpiece! Love the earth tone dimensions in this fantasy forest creation! We hear an occasional owl, but not because of the clunk of their steampunk elements LOL - Love the gears, compass needle pointing to "owl you need is love" - wonderful card! hugs, de

Your DH is going to love this one! Your beautiful owl made me think of the "phoenix rising" in a lot of the Indian motifs I've seen. It's absolutely stunning against that lovely turquoise stenciling. Really liked that sentiment in the lower right corner too. Perfect for your DH! TFS & Hugs

Shirley said...

OMGosh, Shirley, I just bought a bunch of his stencils and can't wait to use them. Your background is awesome and the card is stunning as always!!
