Steampunk Owl - Pink Gem Designs


Good morning everyone, something completely different from me today, my attempt at Steampunk !!!!!
Not my style at all but when I saw this cute image from Pink Gem Designs I decided to have a try. This is for the latest challenge over at Passion for Promarkers where this weeks theme chosen by Jen is 'Cut it Out'.


As the challenge says I cut him out. I created my backing sheet using a cogs mask and blue mica powder spritzed onto black. I added various cogs from SB sprightly sprockets an added a couple of charms. I distressed the cogs a little and added more promarker to some of them. The sentiment is computer generated and I also added a few coloured card Kandy.


 He is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and a little Prisma Pencil. I also added glossy accents to his eyes.


The glossy accents and distressing show a little more on this one.

We are sponsored this week by 'Pink Gem Designs' who are offering 4 images of the winners choice from their shop


  Don’t forget you must use your Letrasetproducts (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.  I hope you will pop over and see the fab cards the other DT members have made this week

I am entering the following challenges:-


Thanks for taking the time to look
