Hello and welcome...
A cute card made for our grandson to give to his dad for Father's Day
I started with a white 5"x7" card base and stamped then heat embossed the Owls, by Woodware, using WOW Embossing Powder in Metallic Copper.  I then masked the image and using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, coloured the lower part of the card.  I used Stormy Sky Distress Ink to cover the top part of the card.  Keeping the masks on the owls I then spritzed water over the card, removed the masks and used a selection of water pencils to colour the owls (these are some of my 'old' stock' pencils and the name of the colours has long disappeared!)  The sentiment at the bottom of the card is part of the Woodware Owl Stamp Set, I stamped it using StazOn in Jet Black.  I typed the top sentiment, printed it on thin white card and matted it onto black card adding mounting foam to the back for dimension.  I used a Micron Pen in black to create the jaggered border and to complete a personal verse was inserted

The deadline for yesterday's card give-away is 9.30am tomorrow and the winner will be announced at 10am

It's the start of a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers also tomorrow and I am hosting this one so my card won't be published on  my blog until 1pm tomorrow.  I hope to see you then
