This weeks color challenge uses Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White. I looked at the colors this week and decided to use the Stampin'Up! stamp set, Owl Together Now. I just received this set a week ago, although I have wanted it for awhile now.
Card stock used was Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White. Inks used were, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. Accessories used were Iridescent Ice glitter, Crystal Effects, Tombow glue, Stampin dimensionals, blender pen, and machine thread.
In one of Kristina's recent video's, she used embossing to create a frame around the card. I took this idea, I love it, and made a frame on my Baja Breeze card. Although you can not really see it, I cut out the leaves and branch and backed the branch with Ch.Chip card stock then cut it out again. I left the leaves unbacked and did not glue the down. All the elements are hand cut and adhered to the card stock with stampin' dimensionals. I cut out the eyes, used Stampin' dimensionals, then Crystal Effects.
Those of you who visit me often, know I love to cut, the smaller the better. The hat top had to be redone as I kept cutting it off. Oh well, it was fun. The card is fun as well. My Owl is celebrating all the January birthdays. Happy birthday everyone!!! Remember to visit Kristina's blog listed in my Favorites.
