Owl you need is Love (by Debbie)

Hello. I decided to make a bright and colourful background for this little owl to sit against. So out came the inks, stamps and stencils.
For the owl I used glossy card and distress inks and stamped with Archival black as I used Versafine wasn't drying on the card. He is a little cutie and not so tricky to cut out. For the background I started colouring a white piece of card with squeezed lemonade, peeled paint and peacock feathers. With stormy sky I stencilled through a circle mask and then stamped with the wavy lines stamp from Abstract Fragments. I had my melt pot handy and poured UTEE onto the stamp and cut out a wavy edge heart. When it cooled I rubbed with gold wax to highlight the detail. Finally I stamped the sentiment and added to the top corner. The Design Team have lots of beautiful samples to show so please pop back. Thanks for visiting. Debbie

  1. I love the owl, and the beautiful background using the abstract fragments. I have bought some UTEE but haven't tried it yet, but it makes a pretty embellishment. It is all finished nicely with the cute little sentiment.
