Today I used the So Owlsome stamp set by Lawn Fawn to make a fall themed thank you card.
I started out by taking a piece of Canon watercolor paper and going over it really well with my powder tool. I then took the Welcome Fall stencil by Echo Park and placed it over the paper. I smooshed my Versamark ink pad onto the stencil which left the leaf design on the paper. I embossed that design with a clear embossing powder.
Next I blended a bunch of different colors of Distress Oxide ink on the paper. The clear embossing on the leaf design resists the Distress Oxide ink leaving those areas white. I used the colors Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple, Fired Brick, and Seedless Preserves. I cut the finished panel into two pieces with my Tonic Trimmer and set them aside.
I stamped the three owls for the Lawn Fawn stamp set onto a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I colored them in using my Arteza Real Brush Pens. I also added some Prismacolor pencil for detail. Check out the video for the details on how the owls were colored. Once they were colored in I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I took the three owls and popped them up onto a card base using foam tape.
For the sentiment I stamped two of the stamps from the same set onto some gray card stock with Versamark ink. I embossed them with a white embossing powder and cut them down into strips. I then adhered them to some vellum to give them a border.
I took two pieces of Gina K Plum Punch card stock and adhered it to the back of both leaf pattern panels so that a small strip of it would show along the edge. I then popped these two panels up onto the card base, one above the owls one below, and cut off the excess. To finish up the card I popped up the two sentiments on the bottom panel.
