Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background. I popped the Owl's That Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled some Bronze Blush CS Pixie Powder over it (yes, I've only used 1 colour of powder). I then spritzed with water. Leaving the mask in place, I placed a piece of Coconut White Card ove the top and rubbed over with my hand to get a negative from the ink sitting on the mask. I put both pieces aside to dry. I spritzed another piece of Watercolour Card with water and then sprinkled some Bronze Blush Pixie Powder over. I put aside to dry.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Applique Flowers Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Sentiment Tag Dies and cut the other die in the set out of Black Card.

Once all my Pixie Powdered pieces were dry, I started to construct my card.

I made a flower using my negative piece and Sue Wilson's Orange Blossom Complete Petals, I cut Sue's Orange Blossom Open Petals out of Black Card and stamens from the same set out of Coconut White Card. I added a Black 8mm Pearl to the centre.

I cut some leaves out of my spritzed piece using Sue's Orange Blossom Leaves.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Black Circle Dazzlers and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

    At first glance I thought how unusual a background and then realised it was owls! So different and lovely. I love how the flower looks too

  20. The owl stencil is what I remember most about your shows and all the 'howzat/Owls that' comments on the shows, it really did seems to have tickled the presenters' funny bones. It is a fab stencil and a lovely card.

  21. Lovely card julia x the mask looks great and the owls appear 3d on the card x

  22. Pretty card. I think the owl stencil is ideal for a single colour as it seems to give the 3D more prominence, but then it might be my imagination. It is a most unusual stencil.


  23. Ha ha! Guess what I've just bought... Thank you again for the info

  24. Just received my powders and mask today can't wait to play x
