The Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper challenge was yesterday, and despite my constantly running nose I played along! The card I chose to CASE from the gallery can be seen HERE. This card also qualifies for the challenge going on at One Stop Craft Challenge because of the dotted designer paper I used in the background.
And here is my card

I used the darling little Wise Owl image that Angie Davis drew for Squigglefly. The designer papers were given to me and I have no idea what company they are from.
I printed the owl out, and then cut it out with a square Nestabilities die. I turned it over and embossed it while it was still in the die. Then I sponged some Creamy Caramel ink around the edges which really gave it a distressed look.
I used my Stampin' Up slit punch to clip the corners and attached brads in the corners of the scalloped square. Here are the colors I used when coloring the owl.
Again, I don't have enough colors of brown to be choosing the correct blending groups, but I just worked with what I have. The little spiral clipie was silver and I colored with with a brown Copic as well as the twill ribbon which was a pale peach color. The card base was spattered with some brown ink with a brown Blo Pen. I love using those things to get a splattered paint effect!
Well, I hope you have a wonderful start to your work week and that the Spring pollen isn't affecting you like it is me! Thanks for looking!
