Makeesha Byl's Challenge #3

Well, as promised I have a new card for you.

I missed Keesh's deadline for this colour challenge but still made the card just to see what I could come up with.

I decided to use this cute little owl from the Celebrate Everyday set and found the perfect background paper in the DS Ginger Blossom set.

I coloured in the owl with watercolour pencils and an aquabrush, added some Blue Bayou ribbon and after stamping the flowers and cutting them out, I added co-ordinating pearls for the centres. The owl base image was stamped in Blue Bayou ink then a second image was stamped in Basic Black so I could colour it in, cut it out and adhere it over the base image with 3D foam squares.

I used the Scallop Border Punch for the edges on the Ruby Red and Blue Bayou cardstock pieces.

SU Supplies:

Cardstock - Blue Bayou, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink - Blue Bayou, Basic Black
Stamps - Owl / Greeting from the Celebrate Everyday ( '08 - Spring Mini catalogue) -
Flowers from the '09 Sale-A-Bration - Polka Dot Punches set
Ribbon - Blue Bayou double-stitched
DS Papers - Ruby Red / White spots from the Ginger Blossom set
Scallop Border Punch

Extras - Self-adhesive pearls - Red / Chocolate (Kaisercraft)

Thanks for stopping by - come back soon, I have more to show you!

'Bye for now.
