Look Whoo’s Turning 1!

C4C174 OwlBirthday wm

Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess Joanne continues to issue the challenges.

Let’s use lots of different textures on our cards…..emboss, corrugate, fibers, fabric,…..real or faux.

For my card today I used a Memory Box die Owl Heart Tree … how could I not get this die with those cute owls. I diecut all the pieces using cream card and then colored all the pieces using copics and my copic airbrush.

As for the texture … you can see the embossed texture on the tree, the leaves and the owls. I have also added googly eyes to each of the owls for more texture.

To create my grass I used the Die-namics Snow Drifts and Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass and embossed these pieces using an embossing folder and sponged with green ink for more visual texture. To finish my card I added the sentiment onto a Fishtail Flag and added a button and some hemp cord for more texture.

I will probably give this birthday card to my grand daughter ….she doesn’t know it yet but she loves owls Winking smile …. well I hope she does cause everyone is buying her lots of owl theme clothing etc and I know her brother loves owls. Yes that might be my influence hehe. Oh and no she won’t be 1 until November she is only just over 3 months old LOL! Nothing like getting an early start.
