Friendly Hooty... 22

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 18, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , , ,

Hello Everyone! Happy Martin Luther King Day to all celebrating :) I would like to thank Paige at the Cards Blog site for featuring my Valentine's card in the "love" theme, polka dot background, scallop challenge. Yipee Skipee!!! I have a little card to share that I made for my girlfriend, Lori! It is sort of plain & not really "frilly" but that is the sort of girl Lori is. Lori is a sweet nature loving, outdoorsy sort of gal. No makeup, no heels, no dresses for her... She is semi-retired & when in town, she volunteers locally at the Owl Rescue Program & when out of town at her second home, she volunteers with the Dolphin Rescue on Maui! How neat is that?! Paige is hosting another challenge this week focused on using trees/branches on your card. For some awesome information be sure to check out Paige's sample of inspiration as well as all the other girls & entrants!

Here is my Friendship Hooty card:

This card was very simple to make. I used 3 different patterns of DP from the DCWV The Green Stack which is 70% Recycled Paper! (Lori will be thrilled to know that :) I stitched the strips on to a piece of white cs then stitched the stamped & embossed rectangular scallop on top of that being careful to wrap the twine around first!

Using my SU markers, I applied SU Chocolate Chip marker to the branch & SU Green Galore marker to the leaves. Doing the little "huff" method (a.k.a.: breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink method!), I then stamped the image. On a separate piece of cs, I stamped the Hero Arts Tiny Owl image using Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored the image with the following Copic Markers: Dull Ivory E43, Caramel YR14, Dark Brown E47 then cut him out with my super duper sharp scissors! I sponged him a bit with some Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink then perched him a top the branch :)

That's all for today! Be Sweet!

Ingredients Used:

Stamps: Hero Arts Tiny Owl, SU Cheep Talk Paper: DCWV The Green Stack, SU Kraft, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip Ink: Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo, SU Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, Copic Markers: Dull Ivory E43, Caramel YR1, Dark Brown E47 Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Long Rectangle & Rectangle dies, EK Success punches, Making Memories brads, PTI twine, Buttons from stash, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF
