Today we are featuring the "Owl be There" stamp set.
I decided to make two cards featuring different owls from the set.
For this card, I stamped the owl and greenery by applying the ink directly to the stamp, as I did not want to use the border for this stamp. I stamped the greenery several more times around and on the owl. I colored the owl with Copic markers then framed it with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I stamped the background panel with the crackle background stamp from the "Background Fun" set, and ran the other panel through a Stampin Up embossing folder. The papers used are Bravo Burgundy and Soft Suede from Stampin Up and fibrous handmade paper. I completed the card by adding a ribbon, antique brads, and a fern charm. The Copic markers, Spellbinders Nestabilities, brads, and charm can all be purchased from Mark's Finest Papers.
For this card, I wanted went for a clean and simple look. I stamped the bird and sentiment in black onto Desert Sand card stock by Mark's Finest Papers. I added three pieces of felt rick-rack to complete the card. Wow, that was just too easy! I'm starting to like these clean and simple cards.
