Sketchy Colors Challenge Blog - 3/1/10

The topic for the challenge this week on Sketchy Colours is yellow, pink and details in bronze.  I had planned this card a few days ago with a pink/yellow/brown K&Co paper to lead the colour scheme.  After seeing the Sketchy Colors topic I looked and lo and behold I had some bronze holographic card I'd had for a while from Wilkinsons and that worked a treat.

The stamp is a Christmas present from a friend.  It is her sense of humour as when I was preparing for a charity event in August I lost an owl stamp and despite hours and hours of looking the only conclusion he's gone to the landfill site in the sky!!!  Even though these stamps she got me weren't the same as I "lost" she thought these new ones by Dawn Bibby would like a new home with me - hopefully safer than the last Personal Impressions owl!!!  There are two owls in the set, one awake and one having a snooze.  This is the asleep one.  He's so cute I had to use him and I stamped with Vintage Sepia Versafine and then coloured with various beiges/browns Promarkers.  I only coloured the edge of the main image as I did a decoupage of the owl and stuck that on.  I then put the image through a Nestabilities scallop square die and then used cut-n-dry foam and Tim Holtz's Tattered Rose, Antique Linen and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and distressed the edges.  The inserts are from Bearlymine and I took it into My Craft Studio (MCS) so I coulf flip horizontally the image and added a "just for you" in the little tags so the tags would next to one another in the centre of the card.  Guess who stuck them on the wrong sides - not to matter as it still looks OK this way as well.  The card is finished off with an owl haematite owl charm (think that's how you spell it), yellow ribbon bow, pink paper flower and yellow paper flower.
