Good Morning everyone.
When i saw the challenge over at the male room and the quote it sparked my little grey cells into whirling and i came up with this. I started with a piece of printed clock paper and added my background over the top of that and it worked really well. And im always happy making a mens card - this will be perfect for several that i know who love their nature.
Approx size 5x7" I die cut my cardblank from kraft card for a more rustic wood feel, i then die cut my piece of patterned paper smaller, i sprayed with water and sprinkled on brushos in turquoise and a touch of sea green to give a nice sunny sky feel - as its thin paper i was careful not to over saturate it with water. Once it was completely dry i stencilled on some dots with rich gold paint and some triangles with amber and marmalade oxide inks, i edged the panel with more of the gold paint to give a gilded effect edge.
I die cut the leaf wreath from kraft card and extra leaves from kraft card, gold mirror card and yellow/orangy/red card - all autumnal colours. The middle piece that came out of the kraft wreath I stamped a woodgrain on with grey ink, i added this flat to the card and then added the wreath with foam pads for dimension and then arranged all the extra leaves. I stamped the greeting onto a strip of kraft card and edged with gold paint and added to the bottom of the card. I stamped my owl and coloured with inktense pencils and cut him out, gently curved him and added with glue gel.
I added glossy accents to the eye of my fab owl. Id also edged the kraft wreath with the gold paint - it really shimmers in the light.
You can really see the background here, i love how the printed pattern of the clocks and script on the paper still comes through the brushos. The lovely quote is by Inkylicious.
