Hi everyone. I have a male birthday coming up shortly and decided to use this Technique Tuesday owl which a crafting friend gave me so thank you to that lovely lady. I had in mind to enter the LIM Challenge which this time has asked for a one layer card and has the title Curve, and this is what I came up with.
I cut a mask from copy paper using an XCut Circle Die and laid it straight on to the base card. I stamped the owl using my Misti into the circle using Versafine Smokey Gray ink and then masked the owl using Pebeo Drawing Gum. When it was dry using a round blending tool and Adirondack Stonewashed and Lettuce ink I added some to the inside of the circle making some clouds with a hand cut shape, and then using the edge of the blending tool formed some distant hills. I then stamped some tree branches using Adirondack Espresso Ink.
I rubbed the drawing gum from the owl and coloured using a waterbrush with Distress Inks in Walnut Stain, Black Soot and Adirondack Sunshine Yellow. I also decided to add a setting sun and a few simple brush strokes to represent distant trees.
I finished the card with a sentiment stamped in the Misti using the Verafine Smokey Gray Ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then decided to add three dry embossed lines for a border.
It is also Darnell of djkardkreations is holding her 2nd Annual April Fool's Boo Boo Hop and NBUS Challenge No. 11. As I don't have any boo boos I am entering this with a NBUS owl stamp and a freebie sentiment which hasn't been inked before either. Luckily I have made the challenge which finishes tomorrow.
Thank you for dropping by today and I hope to see you soon.
