WooHoo! A new challenge starts today at Aurora Wings with everyone's favorite theme,
I've created an easel card using Steampunk Angel available HERE on AuroraWing.com and a new die from Crafter's Companion. My photo box is still packed away in the attic since our July 4th party so I photographed my project in front of a clock my Daddy made that sits on the desk in that guest room. The wooden casing he made is not evident in the pic and the glass door is ajar to eliminate some of the glare but it's still one of my most treasured possessions from him. He was an engineer, artist and meticulous craftsman and this was one of the last things he was able to create before Alzheimer's took it's tole.
Here's a closeup of Steampunk Angel. She's colored with Copics and metallic gold and silver gel pens and also available as a 2-pack with Steampunk Owl HERE on Etsy. My original plan was to use them both, but the size required to fit them both in was beyond my eyesight capability to color them decently. Oh yeah, I also gave her some fishnet stockings with my fine point pen. Hee, hee! You can also see here the intricacy of the die overlay, which was not the easiest to cut, and the metal gears and clock hands I've added from Tim Holtz.
The sentiment was computer generated and cut and matted using a Spellbinders Labels Four. All were inked with Distress and popped with foam. The metal wings and all metal gears are also Tim Holtz.
Please check out the fabulous creations by my Aurora Teammates and come play along. Up to THREE creations if ALL are Aurora Wings but only ONE if not.
Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
