As I said earlier, we were to use the faux silk, and we get bonus points for adding an owl. We're hoping Hoots (StampOwl) will give us a prize since we dedicated this weeks theme to her passion for owls. *grin*
If you'd like to see what the other girls did for this challenge, check out our CCEE Stampers Blog. You can play along too. We'd love to see what you come up with!! All you have to do is follow the instructions there.
First off, the card is only 4"x4". The owl is Studio G and is colored with copics. I also Paper Toled him to give him the dimension the rest of the card has. He's small enough already. I'd hate to give him more of a complex. The circles were all cut with nestabilities, and are paper pierced. I stamped the bg on white tissue paper, colored the flowers with copics, and then stamped the Sanded bg from SU with Latte (Adirondack) over it all to roughen it up a bit. I also ink distressed all the edges with Latte.
To finish it off, I added a variety of rhinestone stickers: flower (Hero Arts), Teeny Tiny ones (Amuse Creative Candy), Corner ones (K& Company) The ribbon is offray.
I used all Prismatic Papers!! LOVE this stuff!! The texture is fantastic, and it inks beautifully. I used their Baby Pink Light and Medium, the Suede Brown Dark, and White (All Prismatics)
Guess what!!I'm so excited to tell you...Michelle at Stamper's Dream is going to be carrying Prismatics!! Woo-Hoo!!! If you haven't tried this paper yet, believe me, you're missing out. One side is textured, the other side is smooth. And it's a fabulous weight too. I'll let you know when it's available at her store!!
