Stamp Something ,,, Celebration ,,,

Time for a new theme over on the Stamp Something Challenge


We are spoonsored by Sweet'n Sassy Stamps so a wonderful prize of gorgeous digi images on offer :-) The DT were given a choice of images to use too ,,,thanks Korin and Dan :-)

For my card I chose to use 3 images from the Olivia Celebrates set. The Owl, the Scroll and the Cap. I also followed the fab sketch on the Sweet Stop Challenge

It is graduation time so I thought this card might come in handy ,,, not that I know anyone who is graduating ,,, but ,,, someone might buy it :-) I coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged the Owl ,, cut around her feathered hands and popped the scroll in, I then added some glossy accents to her beak and tallons :-) The papers are PERFECT !! guess what they are called !! Olivia by Basic Grey !! :-) I inked the background with Stormy Sky Distress ink and then added star dust stickles around the edge. I punched some leaves for her to sit on using a McGill punch, added some green Robins Nest Dew Drops and a Simon Says Stamp exclusives stamp for the sentiment.

Challenges :
Sweet Stop Challenge ,, Sketch
Crafty Creations ,,,,, Owls
Paper Sundaes ,,,, Things with Wngs

The DT have made some amazing cards and creations for your inspiration, We are also welcoming Ellie and Pattie onto the DT this week too :-) welcome aboard girls :-) xx
