Playing in Paradise: Owl Inspiration



Hi and welcome to my contribution to this week's Playing in Paradise challenge at the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog! This week, designer Ally Cope provided us with some owl inspiration!


I saw all that cute fluffy goodness and immediately thought of Flower Soft! So here's my cute fluffy owl!


I used mostly my Cricut for this card. The Create-a-Critter cartridge has so many adorable images! I planned out the cuts on my Gypsy and assembled it using my Xyrons. The sparkly green was done with Lime Green Stickles. The branch and leaves were inked with Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The card base was done using cloud masks and the Copic Airbrush System with B00 Copic Sketch marker. One corner was rounded using the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. I tried to make the eyes pop a bit more by using a Sakura Stardust pen in them.

The winner of the challenge will get to play along with us on the next challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
