Welcome to our:
Today, August 1st is the launch of our NEW Annual Inspirations Idea Book. I'm joining the blog hop with a card using the amazingly sweet, August Stamp Of The Month, What A Hoot.I started this card with the gorgeous NEW patterned paper from Chalk It Up. Don't let the name fool you...there are amazing patterns in the pack that go along with a chalk style patterned paper, also. I matted everything on Black cardstock.
This sweet owl's body has been coloured in with our NEW Shin Han Art Markers. I stamped his belly with images from the set in Flaxen; Lagoon; and Black ink, then paper pieced it. The wings were stamped with Black ink, then I patted them with Lagoon and NEW Flaxen ink pads to add a bit of colour. The sentiment is coloured in with the same alcohol marker as the owl's body.
I added Aqua Dots; Turquoise Shimmer Trim; and retired Black Hemp to the border. I punched the scalloped edge with our Scallop Border punch. I also used retired Colonial White brads to attach the wings. If you were up close and personal with this card, you would also see I have used our NEW Thin 3-D Foam tape on the owl and sentiment pieces.
All supplies are Close To My Heart.
