Steampunk Owl

The new challenge at Crafty Girls is da-da-da-da-ATG so hope you find the time to join us.Sponsors are QKR Stampede and Aurora Wings whose image Steampunk Owl I chose to use,as I have done a few girly ones lately and only a couple of male plus I struggle with the steampunk concept--WELL --I had a coupe of attempts and still not happy with the result,I don't think I did the image justice-it seems steampunk is not my "thing" lol should have used the ballet image lol lesson learnt.I cut out and coloured the owls with promarkers and added two crow dies and as it looked a bit plain,not sure if I used right B.paper stamped on it with cog images -any feedback would be appreciated.

  19. I love this - shows your versatility!

  20. Carla, It was brought to my attention that you've entered the challenge a second time using an AW image but this one is not. The rules state that all multiple entries must be Aurora Wings so I've deleted that one so you still may enter twice more if you use our stamps. So orry to do that but I had to in fairness to all. Hope to see you again. xxD

  21. Absolutely wonderful, another fabulous creation. Love the steam punk theme!
