Steampunk Owl


This is my first Design Team card for Cardz 4 Guys.  I thought this would be an ideal challenge blog for me to break back into DT work.  I really love the idea of making cards for men.  I don't have to deal with ribbons, lace, flowers and such.  It's really nice for a change.

The challenge this week is #9  Words or a Name (Typography).

I found this image on Etsy at Aurora Wings  I just loved the look of it.  I haven't done a Steampunk card in years.  The paper is from Etsy also.  It's available at Vectoria Designs..The typewriter letters are by Graphic 45. I basically had to design words around the letters I had left.  I bought the gears at Hobby Lobby.  I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

I colored the owl with Copics.  I found a perfect color combo on a blog called In Rosie's Book
Copics: E02, E33, E37, E39, C00, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, C9, Y28
