Sparkling Owls - Yup, Sparkling Owls

Welcome - I am so glad you have visited.

Sometime ago I made a DT card with this image from Aurora Wings, and decided to keep the card for a birthday later in the year  - then another family member saw it, and loved the image, so I made a second card for her.


I coloured the image with water colours this time, and added WoS and glitter , and some metallic confetti stars.


I mounted it over a dark green card which I had embossed with a branch e/f and letter pressed it using Delicata Gold ink.


The sentiment was embossed in white over black, cut to a banner shape and mounted over some foam tape.


This photo shows the glitter and gleam of the WoS and Kindy Glitz.

  12. I just love that image too. In fact I think I bought it when I last saw it posted, probably on your blog, but I have yet to use it. Although this is a take on the saying 'See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil', it still reminds me of my all time favourite children's book - Owl babies. I read it to my boys, and to all the children in my nursery, and by the time I had grandchildren, I could tell it without using the book, thought the pictures were too cute to miss. Anyway, you have made a super owl card. I love it. Kate x

  13. Maxine, it's a wonderful image, and your w/c is fabulous. Love that you've mirrored the image leaves with the embossing, which looks impressive with the gold gilding around the embossing. Great work. TFS & Hugs.
