Olivia the Snow Owl
So, today's SCS challenge was to use a charm on your card. Well, do I have any charms? I thought and thought and couldn't think of any, but them I went through some drawers and found a few, but nothing terrific. Then I thought of all my old jewelry. Surely there must be something in there, and sure enough, there was! I found this little charm bracelet that came with a DVD my dh bought and the Christmas cardinal was perfect. Oooops, I think I called it something else when I posted it on SCS. lol Oh well, eventually the right words come to my mind.
So, this is Olivia the owl from Treehouse stamps. I wanted to make her all white since she is a snow owl. Aren't those beautiful birds? I stamped and embossed her with white ep twice, cutting out the wings and popping them up. I then stamped the eyes with black craft ink and clear embossed before cutting them out and popping them up too. I love the "LOOK" she has now. I overlayed the stamped scarf she is wearing with the red gingham ribbon. I mounted her onto this scalloped oval of a basic grey paper, being sure it looks like she is perched on a branch of the paper. See, I even curled her little toes so she wouldn't fall off! lol The card base is embossed with the cuttlebug snowflake folder, and the sentiment is embossed and cut out with my nestabilities.
