Inkspirational Owl




This is my fourth and final card for the Inkspirational DTcall. The challenge was to use the photo as inspiration.

I have several owl stamps (rubber and digi) but they are all cute and I wanted something more realistic, so I download this owl from FreeVintage Digital Stamps. I printed it onto acetate and then stamped around it using Staz-on : moon (unknown UM) , frame ( Kanban),and flourish (Basic Grey) . I added Glamour Dust to the back of the moon. (I’ve done a close-up because it’s hard to see glitter in the photo!) . I stamped an Indigo Blu text stamp onto matt silver card and attached the acetate panel with brads. Sounds simple? It’s taken me hours ! There are several earlier attempts in the bin!

I’ve really enjoyed rising to the challenge for the design team call. Even if I’m not picked for the DT, I know I’ll enjoy joining in with the new challenge blog when it gets going.

As well as Inkspirational , I’d also like to enter these challenges:
Artful Times – Fur or feathers
Craft Ann’s – Black and white and one other colour

Shopping our Stash – Bingo – brad, black, sparkle

I LOVE the sparkly moon! It jumped out at me right away. Such patience to make all those elements work on acetate (there's a reason I don't use it often! lol) Thanks so much for playing Tic-Tac-Toe with us at Shopping our Stash, and lots of good luck on the DT call! Fingers crossed for you :)
