Who's New?

Steampunk Owl!  That's who!  What's new?  Tons of cool stamps at Stampendous!  Yay!  This week those of us on the design team are sharing a few of our newest stamps with you just to whet your appetite and leave you wanting more.  Hmmm...almost mean, huh?  I said almost! 

I'm so excited about this release that I'm going to do a first, I'm going to offer up some secret surprise blog candy.  Now, here's the deal, in order for you to be eligible for MY blog candy, you need to comment on at least three of my posts this week.  No comments, no candy!  Stampendous is offering up daily prizes but you have to comment to be eligible for those too.

So, without further ado, here's my card for today:


This is the new Cling Steampunk Owl, isn't he absolutely owl-some!?  I love this image and if you're an owl fan, I'm sure you will too!  I stamped him in Memento's Rich Cocoa on Bazzill and colored him in with Copics.  Using my VersaMark pad I also stamped some watch and clock faces from Time Flies and Steampunk Gears and embossed the images with clear EP.  I layered my image piece on black Bazzill and added those layers to  my base of Bazzill and patterned papers from KaiserCraft (the black and gray) and Graphic 45 (the clocks).  Next I threw on a little Fran•táge with a mix of Aged Taupe, Aged Copper and Chunky Black embossing enamels along with a smidge of Tea Stained Mica Fragments.  A simple card, but, oh so fun to create!  Here's another view that shows the Fran•táge elements a little better:


So, just to recap, if you want to be entered for my blog candy, you know what to do!  If you want to be entered to win the daily prize from Stampendous, well, you have to comment to be eligible for that too!  A few of my teammates are showing off new products from Stampendous as well!  Some of them have their own blog candy, too. Stampendous will be drawing a winner for this great prize pack.
