Owl The Same Or Not

Good morning bloggers!
The card I have to share with you today is part of a special event!
Read on for the details about the event & I'll tell you about my card a bit later on!

The title of the event is.....Owl the Same or Not
At Just Inklined, they take Copyright very seriously! 
They got together with a group of artists & decided to create a digital stamp on 
the same theme, to show just how different they would be!

The theme was to draw: 
A big owl & a little owl perched on a fence, on a chilly day.

(All proceeds from the sale of the $1 digital images used in the event
will be given to fundraising for a worthy cause.)

Chilly Owls & Wording Digital Stamp Set (which I've used for my card)
will be available at Just Inklined for $1 until 17th October 2013

There will be a blog hop on each of the company sites showing all of the designs.
Make sure you go & have a look at them.
Not only will it be interesting to see how different they all are but each one of the
designs will be available to buy for just $1 for a limited time!
Here's the link to the blog hop.

Now, on to my card!

I made an A6 tent fold card using Kraft card as my base.
I intend to use this card as a Christmas card but I guess the image
would be suitable for other occasions too!

I coloured the image in soft tones using my usual mix of flexmarkers
& promarkers. I then die cut the image & inked with distress inks
whilst it was still in the die. I added a few little touches of glitter
with my Clear Star Sakura pen but you can't really see it in the photo.
I matted onto a scalloped circel of Kraft card.
I ran some DP through my Big Shot in a (possibly Cuttlebug)
snowflake embossing folder.
I inked the embossed paper lightly with the DI too.

The sentiment was die cut & also inked with DI.
I then threaded some sheer ribbon & seam binding through the slots
& added to the card.

Just a little side view to finish up!
Make sure you visit Just Inklined to hear more about the event & the blog hop
but don't forget to snag yourself some fab images for just $1 too!

  7. "Owl Chilled Out" - I'd say - you've created such a frozen setting for Mr Owl he looks relieved to have his glorious plumage to puff out to keep warm Dawn. Ilove how you have used the backing colours of your card to reflect the colour in the owl's feathers - makes your card so classy. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
