Love rusting and anything that is rusty but this time I decided just to use a rust colour: the lovely rusty hinge distress shade. I felt that something steampunkish would go well with these colours so I used my Oxford Impressions stamps called Steampunk Works.
Here's my latest calendar page which some may find a little unusual so sorry if the eyes aren't quite your cup of tea:
|Finished piece complete with calendar stub. I added the stamped eyes simply because it seemed right to have them peeking out through the 'glasses'!
|The bird was stamped, inked with rusty hinge and cut out. A second bird was stamped and the 'wing' and neck 'label' were cut out. All bird pieces were then double embossed with clear powder.
|The 'glasses' were stamped, cut out and embossed with the aged teal enamel. Rust hinge was added to any gaps.The eyes were stamped from a Tim image using coffee archival then double embossed to lend a 'glassy' look.
