A Hootin and a Hollerin!

     I received a couple of new dies this week, and I wanted to share what I made.  My first card is created with my 5 owls on a branch die.  I cut it down to 3 on the front, and tucked another cutie on the inside.  My Owls were colored with Distress inks and an applicator.  I also used the same inks to do a bit of stenciling through the die.  I think it helped with details.  There is Glossy Accents on the eyes, and I added a little bit of Washi tape over my designer paper. The sentiment is from Jillibean Soup and popped up.  Everything is mounted on a kraft card base.

     My second card is a delicate owl die, which reminds me of magical times, and mystical wishes.  I thought he was perfect for a birthday!  This is another of the dies I found on Ebay, along with the stitched triangles I used to cut out my designer paper.  I embossed the front of the card base with a Cuttlebug clock ef, and then added sequins and stars for shimmer.

     So may fun ideas running through my head and I just had to let a few out.  Ever get that way?  So far, this weekend, we have celebrated my DGS 4th birthday, planted a row of new hedges, cooked tons of food, and made steak in my air fryer for the first time.  It was amazing!  Grilling would have been nice but the constant rain makes for a problem.  I am starting to feel like we live in the Pacific North!
