Hi Everyone, Dianna here with a Halloween Door Owl. I used Gina's Designs Door Owl and Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells.
I spray painted the owl with black paint. While I waited for the paint to dry, I punched the feathers, about 250 feathers. It seems like a lot of work but it only took about 1 hour total. On the solid color feathers I used a Gelly Roll Pen to create "feather" lines. After the paint dried, I used black and orange Stickles on the head of the Owl, which I dubed Clarence.
The Clarence's wings were traced and cut out of Graphic 45's Time Flies paper. I then fussy cut two extra for the eyes. The bow was cut from a 1-inch strip of paper. I glued it in a circle then pinched the middle, cut two tabs on the sides then used and extra strip to wrap around the middle. I then used a strip of scrap envelope (one that was sent to me) and glued it to the middle of Clarence. I did this in order to give the feathers a better base to stick to. I inked all of the feathers (including the black ones).
I traced the top hat on Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells. I used a black velvet ribbon, a black rosette, and black feathers. The orange ribbon and orange feathers for a pop of color. The silver spider finishes the hat.
I used gears for Clarence's nose, which were inked black. I cut a gear in 1/2 and inked that as well. I painted the eyes orange and because it was such a bright orange I inked the whole circle. I used the two clocks as eyes and used metals clock hands.
