Welcome to Day 3 of the January Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Design! Hoot hoot! Today we are showcasing the adorable Love Owl-ways stamps and dies. Aren’t they so cute?
I started with stamping and colouring all the images in the stamp set with Copic markers. I wanted a bit greyish tone so instead of the E-s i used Warm Greys. I must admit, i love the result. When i was done, i used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I love the rounded edges the dies give!
As i wanted to use as many owls as possible on one A2 card, i CASE-d one of my older cards. I masked off stripes on an A2 sized rectangle and applied Distress inks in red-pink tones (Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick). I made it a bit ombre effect, keeping the colours darker where i planned to adhere the owls.
When the stripes dried, i removed the masks an ran the panel through my die cutting machine with a stitched rectangle die. I also chose 3 sentiments from the stamp set and stamped them using Picked Raspberry distress inks. These inks were not meant for stamping but with a stamp positioner i always get good results.
After adhering the background to a Fog cardstock and mounting it on a top folding white notecard, i popped up the owls with 3D foam squares. A bit of clear shimmer, a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents to emphasize some details finished off this cute card.
