Owl Always Be There For You

Hello crafters!  I have been playing with the new Wise Old Owl die set.  I started by using the Stitched Cloud die and cutting it to use as a stencil.  I lightly inked the white card around the cloud stencil with Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar Distress inks.  Next I cut the large branch out of tan card.  I used the left over card with the shape cut from it as a stencil on a piece of white card.  I used Forest Moss and Peeled Paint in the leaves and Tea Dye distress oxides in the branches.  Next I added the cut branch across the card and coloured in the leaves with the distress oxides.  Next, I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and cut into the centre to raise the rectangle up with mounting foam.  I cut the Owl out of tan card and lightly stencilled through the die with Tea Dye ink.  I added a chestnut brown backing to the owl and used a white pencil to add highlights to the feathers.  I cut the sentiment in arctic Blue and chestnut brown and shadowed it before gluing it to the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  8 3/4"in size.  All for now Sue x

Hi Sue. The detail you put into your dies are second to none, I know that most of the time I don't need to emboss which I love to do as one cutting pass is enough which is a massive time saver. Your owl is one of those that make me smile, like all things in nature there are cute face owls and some look a little weird but there is no doubt that we have a cute owl in our family lol. Who doesn't love a good leafy branch die? This inspiration is a real hoot xxx

Morning Sue,
I love this card and bought the owl dies so with your permission, I would love to copy it for my friend's birthday.
I particularly like the 'cloudy'background. I didn't notice it at first. My eyes aren't at their best these days. Hugs xx Pauline

Good morning Sue and all.
A great card once again. I like the expression on the face of the owl. I was at an Owl Sanctuary in the summer and some of the Owls looked positively scary. Yours looks quite friendly.

Hi Sue. The owl is an important symbol in many cultures and so can be a useful focus for so many cards. Love the way you have made this card with the branches tumbling over onto the borders.

Hi Sue - I just love your owl dies and this is a perfect card and sentiment for my husband as he adores owls and it was quite distressing to see on the news today that they are becoming very ill due to people using rat poisoning. Great card Sue. Sending best wishes

As an owl lover this card is for me! I love the way the die cuts are on two levels & the way you have done the background with your inks at the bottom. Thank you Sue for your inspiration.
