Happy Owl

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Hoot Hoot, it's Fab Friday!!!  Before sharing with you another adorable image from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection, be sure to stop by the High Hopes website and visit the Fab Fridays sale section!  There are some great deals going on there.  The link can be found here. Happy shopping!!!

This is Happy Owl (SS016), Happy Owl SVG File (SS016SVG), Celebration Balloons (SS013), Celebration Balloons SVG File (SS013SVG), Hoot Hoot Sentiment (FF014) and Hoot Hoot SVG Files (FF014SVG).  These little owls are just soooo cute and fun to use on any project! And there are lots of additional accessories to coordinate with these owls too - hoot! hoot!

To start, I cut the SVG files for the owl (point 7 file), celebration balloon (point 7 file) and the Hoot Hoot sentiment (point 7) on watercolour paper. I also cut the point 14 file for layering the Hoot Hoot sentiment as well.  I used a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and sentiment (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were applied on the owl's beak and feet to add some shine and dimension.

I decided on a piece of SU Black cardstock for the card base.  The background cardstock is from Tim Holtz called Distress Woodgrain.  I sponged some Gathered Twig Distress Ink on the Woodgrain cardstock to give it more of a tree appearance.  The image was adhered to the card with foam tape on the upper half to make the owl appear like he is popping out of his tree hole.  Foam tape was also applied under the balloons and sentiment for some added dimension.  To complete this card, 4 black rhinestones were placed on the "o" parts of the sentiment and 3 beige rhinestones in the bottom left hand corner of the card.  Also, a piece of Doodlebug twine-bumblebee was tied in a small bow around the balloon strings.
