Saturday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Just one day till the latest Woodware One Day Special starts. Looking back at the sneak peeks I've shared so far, I haven't shared a card with the Owls stamp so here you go ............

I realise that not everyone likes to colour in stamped images so this card features paper piecing instead (this stamp is brilliant to colour though 😊).

I stamped the Woodware Owls onto Coconut White Card, onto a patterned paper from Phill Martin's Chalkboard Essentials 8 x 8 Paper Pad and once more onto the reverse side of the same paper - using Jet Black Archival. I cut the black paper image out completely (you just lose the tufts on top of the head of the owl on the right). I cut all the eyes and the owl tummies out of the white paper image and glued them on top of the black paper image.

On the Coconut White Card, I inked through the Tzar Mask using Baked Peach and Warm Cocoa CS Colour Clouds using Smoothies. I moved the mask along the card to extend the design. I inked right through the stamped image as the only bit I needed was the tufts - in fact, you could just draw in the tufts instead of stamping the image but it's good to start with this image as a practice as you cover it up anyway!

I added my owl family, matted onto Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the sentiment that comes in the Woodware Mosaic Owl Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I matted onto Black Card and added it to my card using Creative Expressions Mounting Cushion.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to the corners.

I've uploaded pics of all the samples to my Facebook Page here and to the Gallery Section of this blog here.

Thanks for stopping by.

  11. The paper piecing on this is brilliant but I expect it's very fiddly
