For the first card I used the CAS (Clean And Simple) sketch posted to SplitCoast for this week. I wasn't aware of this sketch until I saw THIS eye-catching card by Kristin. Wow! I loved everything about her card and the layout was so much fun that I had to try my hand at it.
Stamps: Owl Together Now (Stampin' Up!.
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Kraft, Summer Sunrise (PTI).
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers.
Other: mat pack, paper piercier, button (Making Memories), striped ribbon (May Arts), dimensionals, 1" circle punch.
Since I had my new stamp set at hand I decided to make another quick and fast card. I stamped the limb and then an owl on top of it. However I wasn't quit happy with how the feet overlapped the branch so I stamped the owl a second time on PTI Select White cardstock, colored with Copics and trimmed. I then adhered the second owl over the first with a dimensional. That fixed the feet! :)
I added just a touch of sparkle to the rims of the eyes with a Copic Spica pen (I really really like these pens - although I think I need a new clear one).
I'm thinking this will be the perfect b-day card for my dad. Now just to find a gift to go with it! :D
