Ever since I received the new Graphic 45 Steampunk paper pads I have been itching to use it. Today was the day. I found this great Steampunk owl stamp at Michael's today on clearance. So of course I had to use it and my paper.
My card base is black card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. The next two layers are from the 6"X 6" Steampunk paper pad. The dark rust mat was cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The yellow patterned paper was cut at 4 " X 5 1/4".
I stamped the owl on some white card stock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used my Spica Glitter pens to add some sparkle to the owl's eyes, the buckles on his hat and the watch. Once I was done coloring the image I inked the background with Persimmon, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot Distress ink. I also inked the edges of the yellow patterned paper with the Black Soot distress ink.
To finish my card I added a sentiment chipboard tag to my card that I added some ribbon to. Finally I add some chipboard embellishments to the upper corners.
I had do much fun making this card. I am just starting to experiment with coloring and the markers. I hope you enjoyed my card.
