Owl Birthday


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and the theme chosen by JoAnn
is off the edge.


You can always play along with the anything goes birthday theme too.
Our party guest and design team have some wonderful cards to inspire you, so I hope you can play along!


This is a new to me stamp set and I thought these guys could sit off the edge of the moon circle.
I stamped them using versafine clair nocturne ink onto a scrap of  watercolour paper that had brown brushos on it. Then I embossed the image with midnight copper powder.

I used a water brush to remove the brown colour from the eyes, feet and beaks so that I could add white and yellow Prismacolour pencil to those areas, before fussy cutting them.

The moon circle was coloured by blending oxide inks in antique linen, scattered straw and fossilized amber.

I'm linking up to some challenges:

Country View Challenges has a hand stamped theme.

Retro Rubber has an anything goes challenge as long as your stamp is at least one year old. These owls are from around early 2017.
