Wintertide Owl.

Good morning everyone.

Some thing really different from me today! 

love owls ..thought this beauty would make great men`s! cards.. If you perhaps used one on it`s own..and dark colour card..

I cut these in white card added shading with distress ink "Hickory Smoke".
I glued to grey card and cut around with scissors, using black pen & white gel pen I added some detail through the cut lines..Not sure if these are correct colours! but I wanted grey and white owls .lol...  

These were placed using 3d foam tape on to oval shapes.. white by Tim Holtz "Stitched Ovals 661188" green Stitched Oval Sue Wilson..perfect match!..
Branch is Tim Holtz "Holiday Greens Mini 661597" mixed in some purchased berries, brown is of a tree where we walk our dog..berries dried on the tree added a touch of white gesso..
Sentiment Inkylicious "Spread Your Wings" stamped in Archival Watering Can ink, onto Poppystamps "Festival Tags".

Background  Stampin Up."Woodland Texture" embossing folder.

Thank you for stopping by today.. Pam x.

Good afternoon friends, followers and visitors..

After a awful start to the day very heavy rain and cold!

Home for 12.00pm and that was mooching round twice.
It turned out beautiful sun and really warm..

On the left The Lantern after I decorated it.. Cut two in black card:  small piece of acetate coloured with yellow Wink Of Stella Pen.. using Glossy Accents I glued two die cuts together sandwiching the acetate in the middle: The door can be left open or closed, I left open so you can see the candle..
I have used Crackle Accents to decorate when dry I used DecoArt Snowtex..
