Hmmm it seems like I have been stamping lots of owls lately sorry if you don't like owls ... but you all know I do! This card was created for a challenge I do with my CCEE friends on SCS, we had a short break due to the Christmas & New Year holidays but we are all excited to be playing again.
Our challenge this week was to do a technique that my friend Tosh enjoys doing .... that is using kraft card and coloring the image with pastels. I have tons of pastels in this house and hardly ever use them ... so I loved the opportunity to get some of them out and play. The hardest part of this challenge was deciding what image to use .... during the break we had I took the opportunity to update my personal stamping catty and one of the stamps I had to stamp into it was this owl I got some months back but hadn't added to my catty ..... as soon as I saw it I knew it was the stamp for this challenge.
I stamped the owl onto the kraft card using black ink and then colored using my pastels. Everything else about this card I think is pretty much easy to figure out .... I added photo corners to each of the corners of the card and the pieces underneath the owl image are actually an oval shape cut in half.
