Norma J Burnell - Firefly Friends Owl - 2014 Calendar

 Here is a project I have made as part of the Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team.
I have used one of the stunning images by Norma J Burnell called "Firefly Friends Owl".  It is available as a digital stamp and a single rubber stamp.  I have coloured the digital stamp in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire distress inks.
The backing papers are from my beloved Tim Holtz paper pad which my son bought me two years ago.  I have mounted the image on a Marianne Designs die-cut which I have inked with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink.  I have finished the calendar off with some raffia ribbon, satin ribbon, washi tape, calendar tab and some decorative pearls.

I am entering this calendar into the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Pile it On - Animals with character
Bunny Zoe's - Ribbon
Paper Makeup - Lots of layers
Incy Wincy - Ribbon, twine or fibres
Ribbon Carousel - Holidays and Celebration (hope that the dawn of a new year needing a new calendar is OK)
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes with optional extra to make a Christmas card/creation
Crafting by Designs - Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes
Penny's Paper Challenge - Lots of layers

Oh Kym, what beautiful colours - the blue/white with silver accents is so fresh and smart....and your beautiful creativity can be on display, and enjoyed, for a full 12 months. What a gorgeous calender - I'm sure it will give so much pleasure to its recipient. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
