You may think that the challenge was all about stamp carving and you'd be wrong. The challenge was all about owls. Well, I love owls. The problem is that except for those adorable little owls in the Baby, We've Grown stamp set, I don't own any owl stamps. I knew Fate was pushing at me when I found another challenge which is about "birds of a feather flock together". So I decided to carve an owl stamp. It took some work, but I'm proud of my efforts.
I chose Naturals White as my base cardstock and then a layer of Mossy Meadow. My next layer is a piece of Shimmery White cardstock on which I had used the marbled alcohol marker technique. I stamped the branch from the retired Take Care stamp set on Whisper White and fussy cut that out. I glued the branch down using Tombo glue. Then I stamped my owl twice on Whisper White and cut them out. After colouring them, I adhered them onto the branch using Dimensionals. For my sentiment I turned to the Yippee-Skippee stamp set and stamped it onto my Shimmery White paper using Memento black ink.
