*Thrilled to be picked "A Cut Above" for the Paper Players*
Get ready to hear all about what I love. There is so much in this card that makes me smile. Isn't that the best way to feel after creating something?
Those owls---I love them! They are my creations. I didn't just stamp them and colour them---well, yes, I did. But besides stamping and colouring those adorable owls, I created the stamp from scratch. Yes, I did! I used the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit and my sketch and, after some heavy-duty carving, wound up with an owl stamp that makes me smile each time I use it. What could be better than that?
The sentiment---I love it! Twitterpated is a word with which I fell in love the first time I saw Bambi. To have it as a stamp just rocks my world. Don't laugh! Maybe my world is easily rocked but I embrace the feeling. In this case I heat-embossed the sentiment on the retired Designer Series Paper using my Early Espresso embossing powder.
The branch? I just winged it and cut it out of a piece of Early Espresso Core'dinations paper after first putting it through my Woodgrain embossing folder and lightly sanding it. The heart? Thanks to my Hearts Framelits and my Silver Glimmer paper, the heart makes a perfect frame for my owls.
My base is Early Espresso and my next layer is Marina Mist. For a bit of added texture, I used the Filigree Frame embossing folder on the Marina Mist. As a final touch, I scattered some pink and red glimmer hearts across the card.
This was such fun to create! I hope you love it as well.
I've entered this card in the Paper Players Challenge which is all about "critters" and Valentines.
