Love with a Steampunk Owl (by Shirley)

Hello everyone,  I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I have a card today featuring the fun Owl from the new Steampunk Birds set.  I plan to give this to my husband on his next birthday as he really likes the Steampunk designs.


The background is Turquoise Dylusions Ink which I stenciled over with TCW Gear stencil.    I stamped the cog fragment from Steampunk Butterfly with Peacock and Walnut Distress Inks.    Love is from Artistic Expressions.   The Owl was embossed with copper powder and coloured with Tombow markers.  I carefully cut him out and popped him up on the background. 

Thanks for visiting and have a great day,


  1. Another gorgeous card showing how versatile these stamps are

  2. A striking combination Shirley & I love the way you've used the cog fragment from Steampunk Butterfly. The Distress Inks really combine well with the Dylusions allowing their difference in colour to provide texture . Your owl is rather splendid & I love the dimension in those wings.

  3. I love the turquoise background with the cog fragments just visible through the stencilling, and the way you have placed a few actual cogs over the top. The owl stands out beautifully, and the colours you have used fit in so well with the rest of the card.

  4. I love the colours and this fantastic owl!! Beautiful card for a gift to your husband! Coco x
