I've been very busy working on various design team cards - you'll get to see them soon, but I did get chance to make a sweet birthday card.
Stamps: Dare 2B Artzy - Owl Miss You; Waltzingmouse - Half Pint Heroes, Crackle Background
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa; Stampin' Up! - Sahara Sand
Dies: Dare 2B Artzy - Owl Die
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copics; Stardust Pens
I think I've mentioned that I love owls!! Recently I got some Dare 2B Artzy stamps from my local shop, and I found a few more on their website. This sweet little lady was one of them! I've used the colours from The Colour Throwdown - CTD#285 and the layout from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#129. I made the vertical panel by stamping the crackle pattern in sand and cutting to fit the card. I stamped the branch across the horizontal piece of card, coloured the leaves with Copics and added a touch of sparkle from a Stardust pen. I coloured the owl with Copics, adding a touch of sparkle to the centre of the flowers and to the edge of her eyes, she has been attached with dimensional tape. I finished the front with a simple sentiment which I bent slightly to follow the line of the branch. The inside has been left blank for my own message. This one is going into my stash.
That's all for now! See you soon.
