steam punk creative crew challenge

steam punk and stampin up are 2 words that seemingly go together in my world but...meh...
the world is obviously tilting on its axis a bit this month and we have the combination!!

i was inspired by this amazing lady
she does amazing paintings of animals

here is my take on two of her bird paintings
 i have used the 2 step bird punch to make these birds.
i have also used a variety of stamps from various sets
artisitc etchings-key, crown
lots of bots-nuts and bolts
hope and strength-words
tiny tags-corner images
welcome christmas-seasons greetings

each bird was punched out several times and then each one was cut into segments.
these segments were inked and glued carefully into place with tombow and fine tweezers!
some nuts and bolts were cut out and added to wings
then i added rivets with a marker pen for more details and added some crystal effects to make it shiny.
finally the key was coloured in and added to the back



hope you feel inspired to try out steam punk with stampin up products too
feel free to post your ideas up at split coast stampers 

cheers ears
