Old Bird Birthday


I wanted to take a break from making Christmas cards and make a card using my 6yr daughter's drawing of her owl. Kaitlyn drew this owl with a pencil on white cs, I took it to work today and shrunk it down to 30% onto GP white cs. I told her I would make several images so she could have some and make some cards too.
I started with the new in color yellow as the base. I layered with chocolate chip cs. The 2 panels with dp is from The Paper Company and layered again with the in color yellow. I then used the CB distressed stripes folder on chocolate chip cs as the strip, then tied hemp around the strip. The image is adhered onto the in color yellow and is raised with 3D squares. I stamped the sentiment with timber brown stazon onto GP white cs. I colored the owl with SU markers and glued 2 googlie eyes. I then decided the owl needed to be on a branch, so I stamped the branch using a clear stamp from Inkadinkado.
I couldn't wait until Kaitlyn seen what I've done with her owl. This is a keeper. I think I got an artist on my hands, what do you think?
