Today’s card was made for submission to this week’s Freshly Made Sketch and The Paper Players Challenge of featuring one of our featheredfriends on it. The card is on a top fold A2. It is pretty much a one layer except for the owl who is raised up on the clear ½” pop-dots. I stamped his hat on a piece of the same patterned paper used on the stripe and pieced it on top of the base. I added some hot pink flocking powder because every birthday hat must have some fluffy.
The owl was colored up using the Copics listed below and then my colorless blender was used to make some small dots for texture on him. Once he was all colored up I originally
colored his eyes in black, but they looked a little flat. I then remembered I had some wiggly eyes in my stash so I found some that would complement his colors and glued them in
place using some multi-medium matte.
Next I cut my DP stripe and the mat. Now, I don’t know about you but I am terrible about gauging how much paper I will need. To make sure I only had to cut my DP once I grabbed some scrap paper and played with it to make sure I had the correct measurements for my DP. When I had the correct size it was glued to the mat and the finished piece was glued to the card front and I put the finished owl in place. With everything in place it looked a little plain, so I grabbed my trusty Copics, colored up some Hammermill then used Mama Elephant’s Confetti Cuts die. Once I had enough die cuts I placed them around the card and used Lawn Fawn’s Birthday tags to stamp a little using Mama Elephant’s pigment ink.
