Anita is this week's hostess for Teapot Tuesday, and if you visit the challenge HERE you'll be able to find out why my card features and owl, and why we are sending our cards to Pat's (pvilbaum) sister. Anita's challenge is very clever and creative, and once my mind got into the right gear I had so many ideas to choose from. But I wanted to use Scripture, so I used my owl and a feathery background, created using the smack down technique - which you can find in TLC639. I used two of the feather stamps and I think three different colours of ink in various browns. I stitched the edges in feather stitch in green.
Stamped the owl on watercolour paper and embossed with clear EP, then coloured with Inktense pencils. I masked her and sponged around her, and then layered her onto a circle of brown card embossed and sanded.

Beautiful verse and card! I'll have to check out that smack down technique! Your stitching is perfect for this card! What a lot of work and heart went into your creation! I also love those owl cookies Sabrina!

What an absolutely fantastic card this is for JoAnn. She will so appreciate this wonderful scripture and how you actually brought it to life with all these feathers, this wonderful owl, and the bird-print stitching. This will truly touch JoAnn's heart a lot Sabrina. ~Karen.
