Happy Owl

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends! I am excited to share another one of my cards, using a stamp and SVG File from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection.
 Lisa
 
This is Happy Owl (SS016), Dot Simple Happy Birthday Sentiment (F086) and coordinating Happy Owl SVG File (SS016SVG).  How adorable is this little guy???  And oh, so fun to colour too!
 
I started by using my Cricut machine and cut the point 7 size of the SVG Happy Owl file on Copic cardstock.  The image was then stamped with a Memento Black Ink Pad using my Misti Stamping Tool to ensure accuracy for the placement of the image inside the cut out portion of my cardstock.  This image was coloured with Copic Sketch Markers.  (Special thanks to our talented fellow divas - Karen D. and Natalie, for their incredible demonstration at Scrapfest last weekend!  I found it very interesting and a great learning experience using Copic Sketch Markers, especially when colouring this Happy Owl!) 
 
For the card base, I chose some SU Smoky Slate cardstock.  The designer paper is from Fancy Pants-Making Waves 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some specialty paper/film called Vertigo-Tilted Texture (on the bottom half of this card).  The sentiment is not from the latest new release; however, it is a very nice and handy sentiment stamp to have.  The main image and sentiment were both adhered to the card using foam tape. To complete this card, a SU photo corner punch was used and the pieces were added on the top half of the card's corners.  A piece of Doodlebug-Gray twine was tied in a bow, under the main image and a bunch of small yellow and white Prima flowers were also included for some added embellishments.
 
Supplies Used:
InkCopic Sketch Markers - W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, Y21, Y23 and Y26.  Memento Black Ink Pad.
 
PaperFancy Pants-Making Waves 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Smoky Slate and White Cardstock. Imagine Crafts-Vertigo-Tilted Textured Film.
 
Misc - Misti Stamping Tool, Cricut Personal Cutter, Prima Paper Flowers, SU Photo Corner Punch, Doodlebug Gray Twine, Foam Tape and Glue Dots.
