That Darned Owl...

I have quite a bit to share today .. three projects in fact.. but I'm /sort of cheating/ because 2 of them I did for the reapply of the Viva Las Vegastamps! design team --- I can't believe how close we are to a term ending!!

Anyways the three projects are all featuring the same stamp.. this here:
<a href=""><img src=""> <br> Horned Owl - $8.25 </a>

Isn't it FAB??? here are the projects!

This one is a 12x12 Layout where Mr. Owl just fit so nicely as a little henchman!
I used Basic Grey's Eerie collection, cut a circle and glued it down.. most of the stickers are from the collection.. I did hand stitch the circle spots as well as distress the circle with my fingernail. The cheesecloth is dyed with Distress Ink and the flower is made from satin and a handmade cabochon. The owl was stamped on white cardstock with Memento Ink (find it HERE @ VLVS!)

here is a Christmas card (which will be featured in the Holiday issue of RSM!! AHH!) in which I also used the NOEL stamp found HERE. I had dyed the muslin for the flower with Distress Ink. The owl is embossed with a smooth black embossing powder and fussy cut, and the NOEL was stamped in clear and embossed with smooth red on kraft paper.. then I cut the letters apart to give them a bit of whimsy!

And in this piece Mr. Owl becomes a Miss.. a QUEEN in fact! This is titled "Queen Owl has a Visitor" and it's an eclectic little mixture of handmade and filled embellishments.

Queen Owl herself was stamped with Momento Ink and Embossed with Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder!!
