"I have these googly eyes in my stash that I thought would look so cute on this owl," shares Nancy. "They have these fun eye lashes and eye shadow, so I planned my card totally around them."
"I wanted to feature a window card, so I picked out a few papers and a Spellbinders die that would frame my image."
Here is Nancy's delightful creation:
The papers are from We R Memory Keepers' Anthologie collection, and the die is part of Spellbinders' Eyelet Circles set.
"You can see there is a wood grain paper on the inside of this card to add a background for the owl," she explains. "I typically leave my cards blank on the inside to that they can be used for any occasion, but [in this case] I needed something for the image to mount on."
This side view shows how owl was fussy-cut and then popped up on foam tape:
The foam tape gives extra dimension for the cut-out image, which shows through the round window on the front of the card:
Nancy used Copic markers (E31, E33, E37, Y17, Y19, Y26, G03, G07, E27) to color the owl, and she added glitter to its wings, along with bling on the die-cut circle.
Additional bling adorns the sentiment panel and flower centers on the patterned paper, and the ribbon (which was custom colored using Copic Various inks) provides a lovely finishing touch:
I'd say that her project ended up being "owl-dorable," wouldn't you agree? Thanks for visiting with us today, Inky friends!
