WooHooo!

The festivities are still going on for my daughter’s birthday.  Today is the cheesecake and more presents.  Since she didn’t get to have cheesecake yesterday, my daughter insisted on just opening one present (the smallest).  Today is the rest.

Here is my second card.

I couldn’t help but use another of Stacey Yacula’s little owls from Purple Onion Designs.  This is Snowy and I colored this little guy with Prismacolor Pencils.  The image was fussy cut and set aside.

I wanted the owl to have some sort of forest background.  I decided to use one of my first background cling stamps I ever purchased – the Trees Background – from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I thought I’d do a watercolor effect using Distress Markers.  I first colored the tree trucks with 2 shades of brown.  Then I proceeded to color the leaves with 2 shades of green.  I lightly sprayed the stamp with water and gently stamped my white cardstock.  I let the image dry.

On a separate card panel, I cut a small oval in the center.  Using white scrap CS, I created a oval frame using 2 different size oval dies.  I stamped a woodgrain background stamp on the frame and then lined it up and adhered it to my card panel.  I then cut the portion of my forest background that I wanted to use on my card.  I taped that portion on the back of my card panel.  I then added the sentiment.  The “Woohooo” was stamped and then heat embossed and then I added a simple birthday sentiment under that.  I then adhered the panel to my card base and then added the little owl to the oval frame.

Have a great weekend!
