More Steampunk Love

Hi everyone.  I am back with another fabulous preview from Simply B Stamps.  This is A Heart for you Rio.  Isn't she cute?!  This is my favorite one in the new Teen Scene Valentine Steampunk line.  The reason you ask.  Well, because of the bird on top of her head!  If you follow my blog you know that I have 5 parrots.  I am all about the birdies!!!!

I colored Rio with Copics.  I colored her bird to match one of my babies.  His name is Ferguson and he is a Blue & Gold Macaw. 

Isn't he handsome?  Of course he is too large to be hanging out on heads but he is beautiful.  I do have an African Grey who loves to sit on heads.  She grabs the hair and rides your head like a bull.  She is so funny when she does it.  Whenever someone new comes over, she jumps right on their heads to check them out.

Back to the crafting.  I used Tim Holtz gears and some screw brads on this card.  The background paper is a thin sheet of copper paper that I glued to another piece of paper.  Then I ran it through my BigShot in an embossing folder.  I added Diamond Glaze to Rio's glasses to make them look real.  I love using it but I have a terrible time with the tip clogging.

I had a great time working on Rio.  Please head over to SBS and see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  They are amazing.  Then come back tomorrow.  We have previews all week.

Thanks for stopping by.
