Yesterday I spent a good portion of the day making some thank you cards. One of the people I want to send a thank you note to collects all things with owls so I had to find the perfect stamp from my collection of stamps for their card. This owl is from Heather's Stamping Haven in Ottawa, Ontario and is labeled HSH 342M. (Click Heather's link to visit her shop.)
The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Boards and Beams set.
I stamped the owl with versamark on watercolor paper and embossed in antique gold. Then using Tombow markers and brush and water I colored the image. You know me....I just had to add some sparkle so I used crystal and bright yellow stickles on the moon and copper colored stickles the owl. The owl's eyes have gold crystals on them.
I have a few more cards to finish up today. Making these cards keeps the happy memories alive of our trip to England.
Until next time.....
