I wanted the owls to appear as though they were peering out of the hole of tree, so I stamped the owls, outer leaves and flower frame about 6 times. I cut out circle in the same woodgrain paper and placed the owls inside it with a small piece of the brown card as the background. On top of the circle I coloured in and cut out lots of the leaves, branches and flowers that I had previously stamped to add depth. The branches were cut out using my Cricut, and the leaves were cut from a swirl die and coloured with promarkers. It took quite a bit of time to do but I was happy with the end result. I just love dimensional cards.
This is what I used:
Stamp: Neighbourwood 'Owlets'
Paper: First Edition 'Desert Blooms'
Leaves: Cherry Lynn Designs 'Fanciful Flourish' B117
Branches: Cricut, Cricut Cartridge '
Pro & Flexmarkers: Ivory, Putty, Pastel Yellow, Sandstone, Lemon, Sandstone, Caramel, Canary, Pumpkin, Satin, Ruby, Orange, Berry Red, Forest Green, Leaf Green, Meadow Green
White Pen, computer generated sentiment, 'Tea Dye' distressing ink
