the owl family
Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Yesterday was an exciting day for me. My future
'daughter-in-law' invited me to the big city to go wedding dress and bridesmaid dress shopping with a couple of the bridesmaids (not all could make it). Anna had already picked out her dress so we got to see her model it. Oh my goodness, as usual I cried, my eyes just welled with tears, she was gorgeous - breath taking actually! The girls picked out their dresses as well - full length, dark grey - lace on top (sleeveless) and tulle for the skirt - stunning. Now it's just the waiting game - 10 more months!
Today I have another Christmas card I made. This one is using a Wild Rose Studio image. When I first saw this image on Simon Stamps website I knew I had to have it. There is just something about the Wild Rose stamps - they are just so adorable.
I stamped the image onto some white cougar 100 lb card stock using black memento ink. I pulled out my prismacolour pencils and began to colour. After die cutting the image I left the die in place and sponged some soft sky around the image.
The sentiment is from PTI - stylish sentiments holiday set, which was stamped on a die cut using PTI - double tag ends die.
For finishing touches I used glitter (of course), white flock for the hat trims, and the Memory Box holly bouquet die. I cut this twice - one from green paper and once from red. Inserted the red holly berries into the green die cut.
