Well this is the Victoria Day Weekend and for those of us who live in Canada it's a three day weekend. Yay! Some of the parks open this weekend but
I have been up in the craft room today tiding up and playing with my new rubbah! I had a bit of fun with the new Aviary set.
I am officially in love with the owl in this set. He is so freaking adorable. I went to my cut card stock and looked at the colors and since I haven't used Tempting Turquoise in awhile, I thought, why not?
Pairing it with Lucky Limeade was a no brainer. Which is good cause right now I have a no brain- er.
Here you go -
I embossed the cage in silver and masked off the cage so I could add the stand. (the stamp has a long stick and I needed a short one) After I had the cage done I stamped the owl in Tempting Turquoise. Because the cage is embossed it looks like the owl is in the cage. Love that!
I used markers and the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set for the flowing flowers. Same colors! I cut out a couple of flowers and added them to the places where the flowers were a little skimpy due to me not stamping in the right place. But as I say - there are no mistakes, only opportunity for embellishments!
I put the cages on a large block and stamped them up one side of the card in Turquoise. I added a little greeting and glued it to the side of the focal image. I also added some mini pearls and as you can see, ribbon.
Is this not cute? I ask you how can you not smile at his silly face?
Ok that's it for today, once again it is time to go!
