Big Eye Owl


I am playing along the HLS February CAS Challenge.

The embossing folder stamping is a technique where you ink up the raised side of the embossing folder, spritz with water and press your paper down on it so the image is 'stamp'ed onto the paper.  You could get more details on the Happy Little Stamper Challenge blog.

And here's my card:

I used my Darice Sheet Music embossing folder for the background.  The focal point is my owl from Ki Memories, and it's sitting on the Marcelle Flower cut from a die I've won from Poppystamps's January 2016 New Release Blog Blitz!  Thank you Poppystamps!!!   My owl is stamp with Hero Arts Ombre Butterbar to Orange, the I coated it clear embossing ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  I haven't decide on the sentiment yet, it could be birthday, or get well, or friendship; so I'll stamp it as the occasion arises!  ;)
