Fly Like a Bird

Happy Thursday Bloggers, we've got a new challenge starting today over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog.  The theme this week is 'Fly Like a Bird' and our prize sponsored by Alota Stamps.

After buying some great stamps by Paper Artsy last weekend, I just knew I wanted to use this JOFY 15 set for my DT card this week.  I tried hard to resist this set of stamps whilst I was in Snazzy's but these owl images were just so darn cute that resistance was futile and they HAD to come home with me !

I woke up with the design for this card in my head and had to sit down immediately (before breakfast even) and make it.  I've a pal who is going through a difficult time right now and I wanted to make a special card for her to let her know I'm thinking of her and hopefully to make her smile.  I'm hoping this will achieve both of these aims.

As the three owl stamps in this set are different sizes they were perfect to layer-up totem pole style.  I created the sentiment on my computer then stamped the three owl images above and coloured them with my Copics.

Using some scraps of patterned and plain card I layered the image with narrow borders showing.  To add a little texture to the white base level I wrapped bakers' twine around, before attaching the image layer. 

For a finishing touch I added Glossy Accents to create 'googlie eyes' - just for fun !

That's it from me today, hope you've enjoyed your visit.  You can check out the creations from the rest of the DT over on the CCT blog.

Have a great day.
