Owl birthday card

over 60 minutes Pink moderate Card Making Birthday

Had a much better afternoon playing with my gelli plates, decided to try with distress oxide inks and brushoes, as acrylic was just too messy!!! Made a graduated back ground and added circles stamped using toilet rolls and then flicked with water to bleach. Stamped two owls orignally on the darker section which I cut to fit the card blank, then stamped them again on the lighter section and fussy cut them out. Curved them slightly and attached over first stamped owls using a foam pad. Added grass with black fineliner and then printed sentiment, inked and attached with foam pads. Matted topper onto black and then purple card and attached to 5x7" white card blank. Take care all. x

Thanks Steph, the owls were a lock down treat for myself. I find loo rolls are great for a very thin circle print. x

A great birthday card Kirsty. The owls are cute. Acrylics are messy 😂😂 I tend to wear my 'pinny' as otherwise it would be all over me...well it still is!

Thank you, I got in such a mess, my hands, the stencils, bubble wrap, the brayer, I had it everywhere!! Distress oxides are so much easier to deal with. x
