Who else is going to the 'Tea Party'? Intro #3

The fairytail continues....so quick story recap...

Once upon another day in Wonderland some very quirky characters are excitedly getting ready to attend a steampunk themed costume Tea Party.

We've already peeked in on the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat getting ready for the party so let's see who else we can spy on ;0)

Oh my, looks like we've stumbled upon the Royal Rooster and his best friend, The Rocketeer!  They are ready and heading off to the party already!  Don't they look like a handsome pair ;0)

The Royal Rooster
The Rocketeer
Both of these feathered beauties are from Blockheads Paper Arts' brand new Steampunk-esque "Fringe Folktails" and in celebration of the launch the set is currently on sale for $12!

 Stamp both images with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colour with the following Copic Sketch markers

All the feathers are coloured with a combo of E0000, 000, 11, 13, 15, 18 and 41.  The Rooster's Head gear: E15 and 09, Crown: Y17 and 23 with W1 and C3 to give it a tarnished gold effect and also add some shadows.  Beaks:  Y17 and 23 with R39 and 46 on the Rooster.  Talons: Y17 and 23.  Owl's eyes are G09 and all the Steampunk get-up: W1, 3, 5, C0, 3 and 5.

Complete the look with touches of metallic silver and gold Promarkers with hightlights of white gel pen.  Completely cut out the images with a pair of sharp detail scissors.  Add Judikins Diamond Glaze to the Owl's googles for a glass-like finish.

So it looks like we've met everyone that is invited to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.  Let's head on over and see if we can grab a cup of tea and a piece of cake when no one is looking..... ;0)

Happy Stamping!
