It's been A HOOT!

We said farewell to this awesome August Stamp of the Month, What A Hoot, yesterday.....but I had one last card to show you. This is a card I made for one special customer, to give to another. Here is how I did it.
 I started with Pacifica cardstock and matted with Crystal Blue cardstock. The patterned paper is from retired Ariana. For this sweet owl, I started by stamping her on Crystal Blue cardstock and cutting her out. I stamped the eye mask; wings; and belly on White Daisy cardstock, then swiped Flaxen and Lagoon ink over each piece. On the belly, I used 3 of the small stamps with Black; Lagoon and second generation Black ink.

After I cut each piece out and covered the wings and belly with Liquid Glass. I cut the word "FRIENDS", in Black cardstock, with Art Philosophy at 1/2". I stuck it down to White Daisy cardstock that I had also swiped with both Flaxen and Lagoon ink. Then I covered the entire piece with Liquid Glass. It looks different in this picture, than the owl's pieces, because it is still wet.
I added Liquid Glass to just the stamped flower part of the owl's eyes then a teeny Blue Sparkle to the middle. I finished the card with Black and Turquoise Shimmer Trim and Lagoon Baker's Twine.

Stay tuned for my post tomorrow to show you what I have created with our September #30yearsofhappy stamp set. You can have your own set FREE, during September, by spending just $30 on any current retail-priced stamps. Click on the link to find out how.
