“Bionic Bird”
Welcome to another challenge theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
This fortnight it is STEAMPUNK.
Remember this is a stamping challenge so bring out your stamps and have some fun!!!
And remember, Marina from Cottage Crafts offers a fabulous prize each fortnight and we have our DT picked runner ups, spotlights, and sneakpeaks of the next challenge…

I have gone with a steampunk stamp sheet from Oxford Impressions, because I love this bird!
Even though I’ve had this stamp for AGES…it’s not one I have used very often.  This time I have settled for stamping it on acetate with Stayzon Ink and working some alcohol inks behind it…and then layering it onto white cardstock that is lightly sponged with DI’s.  Then I layered it again onto torn card.
Now for the bit that is a little different…
I have dipped (carefully) the edges of the acetate and torn card into melted UTEE for a chunky metallic feel.  And used some droplets of UTEE for studs around the edge.
