Steampunk was a brand new genre for me. It's a cross between vintage and punk and really a lot of fun to design. To wrap your head around it, think gears and gadgets, imagination and invention, then add a little punk and little whimsy. There you go - STEAMPUNK.
I wanted to try a monochromatic project and this owl was perfect. I used the E50 - E59 Copic family. The dimensional gears are Tim Holz, the gear die cut is Sizzix, and the stamp I used to create the background is from VivaLasVegas Stamps. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs "Owly Hoo" set. Since I used scrap kraft paper for the die cut and recycled paper for the stamped background, I'm entering this card is Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday "Give a Hoot" challenge.
I used R43, 46 and E08 for the skirt and BG 10, 11 and 13 for the umbrella and corset. I found a wonderful Sizzix embossing folder perfect for this style and a great stamp from Hero Arts "Art of the Card" set. I used the gear die cut and then embossed with a Sizzix alphabet folder. Of course this style calls for lots of Distressed Ink.
There are lots of colors in this one, but the main colors are BG 11,13,15, and 45, YR 61, 65, and 68, andYG 21 and 23 and the W's 0-5.
Isn't this Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper fabulous! It speaks for itself.
