The Owls have it.


I do have a bit of thing about Owls and when I saw Mo Mannings Owl Moon, I knew they had to be brought. It was surprising how many bits I had to cut out to layer but it was well worth it because I love how they turned out.
Since I printed them out quite large there wasn't much I could do with the layout of the card.
The white mat I used the Stamping Up bark embossing folder and the chervon paper is from them too.
The sentiment is the Perfect Love set from Simon Says Stamps, I also used the Snow Falling stencil to help me with random for the liquid pearls.
The ice/snow on the branch I used glossy accents and sprinkled glamour dust on while it was wet.


Its been quite a eventful week so far, outside my the back door is a great big hole and surrounding area it a large mud pie, hoping today is drier for the builders. The outside work needs to be done before they can start inside. Spoke to the Plumber yesterday and had to decided where to put a radiator all I could think of was how much valuable cupboard space it was taking up.

What an amazing card Deby, I love the owls and the colours are so vibrant. Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog, I do appreciate you taking time to visit and see what I've been getting up to ! Tans also for the reference to the spoon theory, I hadn't heard of it before and it's very good, a great way to describe how RA/Lupus are impacting my life, hard learning to manage my spoons, but got to keep trying !

Hugs

Wow this is stunning, the owls are beautifully coloured and pop off the page at you. Your comments are suddenly embedded rather than in a pop up box making it harder for me to correct typos on my iPad.

Jane Savage said...

Another amazing design, Debby. Fabulous colouring and gorgeous backing paper. Love the embossing too. xx

Beryl said...

Oh what a fab owl(s) image Debby. The finished result is well worth the time it took you to layer it all up.
Pity you can't stretch to underfloor heating - that way you wouldn't lose any floor space.

Striking design on this one Debby. Your layering of the image fascinates me, I have to study each one to see how you've done it, it really makes the image 'pop' without being too bulky. Love it.

Debbi, this is fabulous...fabulous...fabulous .. :). What kind of paper do you use for your digi. Because what I use the ink runs when I am coloring.

Pat said...

I love these owls, Debby, and the layering makes them look really 3D and as though they might fly off their perch any minute. I love the chevron dp and the lovely white bark EF makes the lovely blue mat with the owls on really stand out. A beautiful card.

Your card is fantastic, Debby. I laughed at how all you could think of was the loss of cupboard space when you were contemplating where to put the radiator. LOL
