Day 22 of 31 Days of Halloween

Woosh!  Running out of time.  I had some ideas I wanted to be sure to make for this bloghopping extravaganza - but it's day 22 and I keep making ATCs or cards… my ideas are MeltIng…

Sharp Owl

This another image that is a family favorite around here.  I collect owl stamps and I do love this guy!  I even made a quilt based off the Sharp Owl image for my daughter.. but today it's he's a stamp, kinda dressed in Halloween colors, on a card.
Usually I go yellow with the eyes, but I was feelin' green.

First I did some background stamping with the numbers, and newsprint in orange, as well as the hinge in purple.  Misted it then let it dry.  Then I stamped and embossed the sharp owl and colored his eyes and did a little color highlighting.  I went around the edges with purple gelatos (YES I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH!) and smudged it up. I made a card and then layered a piece of black tulle on top and stapled that bad boy right onto the card.

He was supposed to have a little witch hat on.  I stamped it up and glittered it, but it just didn't seem to fit on those owl-brows.  So the colors will have to make it Halloweenish for now.  Thanks again for visiting my 31 days blogging craziness!

The colors certainly qualify for Halloween. In fact, owls and Halloween seem to go together in general. Love how you've layered the stamps and so cool how you added the tulle and then stapled. Fabulous! xxD
