Blinky Owl

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Happy Friday and for all of our American friends - Happy Memorial Day Holiday Weekend!!! Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday!

It's also Fab Friday again too!!!  So don't forget 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!!! 

For today's card, here is another one of my creations from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection...
This is Blinky Owl (SS014), Blinky Owl SVG Files (SS014SVG), Another Year Wiser (FF010) and Another Year Wiser SVG File (FF010SVG).  These owls are just the sweetest ever!  And there are lots of different ones to choose from...and even additional accessories to coordinate with them too! 

To start, I cut the SVG files for the owl image (using the point 7 file for the stamped image) on watercolour paper. I used a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (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, some glossy accents were added to Blinky's beak and feet.  I just love this shine and bit of dimension!

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Basic Gray cardstock.  A YNS stitched rectangle die was used to cut the white layered piece. The designer papers are from Doodlebug-Hip Hip Hooray paper pack.  The coloured owl image was mounted on the SVG cut file (14-layering) using SU Crushed Curry cardstock, and then foam tape was applied to mount the main image on the card to add some dimension. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

To complete this card, a few YNS-white gumdrops were used on the top and bottom corners of the card, and a small piece of Doodlebug Twine-gray was tied above the sentiment designer paper to resemble the bow on a present.
