Hello to anyone reading this and thank you for visiting.

Today, I have been playing with owls again.
It seems to have been a long time since I've done this.

I have many owl stamps as I have mentioned before, but I recently purchased a Lindsay Mason stamp  called Zendoodle Big Owl Ready to Go, which I really like.

It's a lovely stamp in it's own right, on the left of the picture below, but I was really pleased to see that it fitted beautifully on the Artcuts owl shape too, on the right of the picture.


On the sample above, I have stamped and heat embossed onto black and then coloured with pearlescent powders. This is a technique I often use as I like the effect.

On this one, I have heat embossed the image onto the wood and then it has also been coloured with pearlescent powders. Tiny hearts have been stuck on for the wings.

The embossing folder behind is an old Cuttlebug folder which I have had for years and it is so useful as a background for all my owl stamps.

Thank you for visiting and I hope your day is as beautiful as it is here.

Bye for now.

Chocolate Baroque challenge

Hello again.

I am entering another card into the Chocolate Baroque challenge this month.

They are gorgeous colours and well within my comfort zone.

 This is the same card before being mounted onto the purple. I took the photos at different times which was a mistake as the lighting was very different
 I think the Sizzix embossing folder and die cut work well with this design and I was very pleased with the result. The stamp is called Song thrush and has proved very useful.
 I have done this design in several different colour ways, as I was going to enter last time as well and left it too late!  I'll post these next time.

Thanks for visiting and bye for now.
