A Parliament of Owls – Card Making

Morning everyone

Happy Monday!!

I hope you have had a great weekend.

Today I would like to share with you two cards made with the new Crafty Individuals’ Little Owlet Stamp.

This stamp is sooo adorable!

Card 1

Flo Langley CI Owls and Sentiments July Issue 2 - Cards 032awm2a
To make this card
Dab some Distress Ink onto a plastic file wallet and spritz it with water.
Take a piece of pre-cut white card stock and swish it around in the diluted ink and leave it to dry naturally or use a heat gun.
Repeat the above step using a different coloured Distress Ink.
Stamp the owl image using black Archival Ink or similar and leave to dry.
Color the flowers and add a little shading around the owl bodies.
Take a stencil/mask and using some Distress Ink create the pattern around the outside edge of the card.
Stamp the sentiment.
Make up the card as seen.

Card 2

Flo Langley CI Owls and Sentiments July Issue - Cards 003AWM
To make this card

Pat some light grey Distress Ink onto a plastic file wallet and spritz it with water.
Take two pieces of coated card stock and separately swish them around in the ink.
Take a piece of copier paper, place it over the inky pieces of card and blot the ink on each of the pieces and leave to dry.
Stamp the owl image using Distress Ink or a dye based ink, in the same position, on both pieces of card.
Stamp the feather and sentiment on just one of the pieces of card.  This will be the top piece.
Cut out an aperture from the top piece of stamped card as per the made up card above.
Edge the aperture with gold pen.
Using foam pads, attach the top stamped piece to the second stamped piece lining up the aperture with the owls on the bottom layer.  You may need to trim the bottom layer so that it doesn’t show.
Make up the card as seen.
