My creation is a rather quirky as I couldn't resist inking up my steampunk owl, having got into steampunk mode last week. Here's what I made and hope you like it.
I stamped the owl image (Stampendous)
with black ink, stamping just the head and hat and the bow tie section again so that I could decoupage him. I coloured him with a variety of Promarkers and cut the elements out, assembling the pieces with foam tape.
I then made a rather experimental background with a Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folder. I used a piece of card slightly larger than the folder and inked just the embossed section all over with Wild Honey Distress ink. Then instead of swiping ink over the raised areas as I would normally do, I pressed the ink pad directly on them. This does produce lines but you really do have to go with the flow as you'll see from the pic below that they end up being part of the design and giving a very grungy look. I used Stormy Sky, Barn Door and Vintage Photo. I think those stripes give a very cool effect!
Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx
