Hello, Crafty Makers
I am amazed at how well I have been able to stick to my crafting resolutions. I wanted to do more stash reduction, so I went to Paper Playful in search of a challenge and found Die Cuttin Divas's Sketch Challenge.
Owl Always Love You
First, I closed my eyes, reached into one of my 6"x6" paper bins and pulled out a pad. I was a little concerned when I opened my eyes and saw that I had selected "Sweet Owl" a pad by First Edition Papers®. I have had this pad for a long time and while I thought the papers were pretty, I could just never figure out what to do with them.
Next, I went to my stamp collection and there I found this cute Inkadinkadoo® Owl stamp that I purchased umpteen years ago for two back when stamping owls was all the rage.
The owl was stamped on mauve paper in black ink and then stamped again with VersaMark™ ink and then heat embossed with clear glittered embossing powder. Although it does not show well in the photo, the papers are embossed with similar embossing powder. I created the sentiment on my computer. The black letters have a thin pink outline. I finished off the sentiment by adding Wink of Stella™.
Stuff I Used:
Solid Paper: Kraft Card Stock 4.25" x 10.00"(project size is 4.25" x 5.50")
Pattern Paper: First Edition Papers® "Sweet Owl" Premium Pad
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo® Mini Owl
