Happy "Owl" Hallows Eve
I seem to be in a tag mode and found some adorable Steampunk digi stamps at SCACD. I immediately fell in love with Victorian Steampunk Owl by Carmen Medlin and thought she (or he? the owl, not Carmen LOL) would be fun for Halloween. The clockwork DP is from Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells.
I colored Victorian Steampunk Owl with Copics and gel pens and fussy cut and popped her atop a Memory Box Gear Assembly die. Added round epoxy stickers to her eyes and light bulb tummy to make them shine. I can totally see this stamp in other colorways, for various occasions, but if you'e into owls, there is a whole collection of owl digi stamps at SCACD.
Although the Memory Box Gear Assembly is now sold out, SCACD has a bunch of fab dies, even some exclusives, like this Steampunk Wings Pair. Don't they make a great tag topper? I've use my Spellbinders Postage Stamp die and a Tim Holtz metal gear to reinforce the hole on top. Ribbon is from my stash.
Finally, I've added a Tim Holtz monocle and attached it to the die cut with a fastener to capture the sentiment done with stickers from Authentique. Some mini gears complete the Steampunk theme.
I'm entering my tag in the Simon Says Monday "O" is for (owl) Challenge, Crafty Sentiments Things That Start with "G" (gears) Challenge, Outlawz Twisted Thursday ATG/Favorite Technique Challenge (fussy cutting and die cuts), Papertake Weekly Superfly, the Fitztown Challenge Halloween using Digital Elements, Melonheadz Friends Lots of Layers, Marker Pop Challenge #54 Halloween, Through the Purple Haze Wings and Bling, and the Corrosive October Halloween Challenge and the Simply Steampunk October Color Challenge Black/Cream/ and Orange.
