Owls… and More Owls

K… I think everyone knows I like this Owl #2 Die from Sizzix. I saw it was on sale at (along with all other Sizzix dies!) right now and I thought I’d do a little owl roundup post to show some different ways to use it.

and of course…

Happy Birthday!

This is my card for the MIX10 Mix-ability & the Free For All Challenges on Splitcoast this week.

The challenge is to hand cut circles (no dies!) from something (paper, fabric or whatever), add ink or paint & glitter to make a flower.

The Free For All Challenge is Birthday.

I went a little backwards and added my paint (Gelatos from Faber-Castell) first to a coffee filter.

I misted with water and let the colors blend.

One of the Gelatos I used was metallic and the result was shimmery goodness.

I then cut some circles in different sizes from my prettied up coffee filter. These circles are in no way perfect… I like them that way for flowers.

Next I added Sprinkles! glitter from Clearsnap (the best glitter ever!).

Assemble flower layers and scrunch. Here is a close up of my flower:

Next I took a piece of newspaper and scribbled in green and misted. After it dried I tore out a leaf shape and sponged the edges with Chestnut Roan Colorbox Chalk ink.

Here are my supplies (forgot to add the white acrylic paint I used along with the Smooch to splatter the card back.  Phrase stamp is from Paper Smooches.
