Who gives a hoot?
First, I want to thank each one of you who read my blog for the heartfelt words expressed here on my blog as well as cards of sympathy I've received in honor of my dear Bella. You all know that she was more than "just a dog" or "just a pet" to me and your sincerity and kindnesses expressed mean more than you'll ever know. THANK YOU!!
I have so many men in my family that have birthdays in the month of August. I wanted to do something a little different this year so I decided to use this owl stamp that I purchased at HEATHER'S STAMPING HAVEN, in Ottawa. This stamp, as well as the sentiment stamp, are Heather's own design.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed the image with gold detail embossing powder. Next, I watercolored the image with Tombow markers. Then I added a little stickles glitter to the moon and the tips of the wings.
You know what the hardest thing for me was? I couldn't decide what color(s) to make the owl? I think next time I'll make him grey/white.
I hope the guys like this for their card.
Thanks for stopping by.
