Did my title really say Steampunk Chicken? YES. Check out this wonderfully whimsical Steampunk set from Artist Di Davies at Blockheads called Fringe Folktales.
I have had the "altering" bug lately..... I wanted to alter something. I found this note pad that I thought needed a nice cover. I started with Cream CS and created a background with Crafters Workshop template -Chicken Wire and Fireworks Craft Ink Spray and Walnut Ink Sprays. See my tutorial here.
Distress Ink Pads- Shabby Shutter, Vintage Photo, Black Soot
Fireworks Craft Ink Spray-on Sale in Desert Sand
Cream, Kraft, and Black CS
5 x 8 Note Pad
Distress the edges of the background piece with Shabby Shutters and Vintage Photo inks. The Steampunk Chicken is stamped with Black Stazon and colored with Distress Markers. The other stamped elements are stamped with Black Soot ink.
Here is a view of the side...you can see the note pad in this view. As you can see, I did not use a brand new note pad. I should have, but did not have one in the house.
And here is a peek of the inside with my "To Do List".
Really fun project! What can I alter next??!! Don't know. Any suggestions??!!
