Owls


Good morning you all! This time I double checked to make sure I had the right theme for my tag! I love owls, and often hear one here during the evening,  but have never seen it.

The first tag has been made using one of my pizza-box craft tags. I used the stamp pad to stamp the colours - forest moss, wild honey and rusty hinge -directly onto the tag, and distressed the squares with perfect pearls in green, gold and bronze. I used the due.cut waste to sponge the first tree onto the tag, and then embossed the tree - cut from a scrap of 7 gypsies paper - using a Tsukineko  Glue Pad and clear EP.

The owl is a rub on, and I just added some leaves, a pumpkin and a hedgehog. And can you see who's hiding behind the leaves?


This tag had been made using a part of a card that was sent to me, as I liked the night sky so much. The moon has been punched from Miri card, and the 'hills' have been made from torn card with inked edges.
The owl has been stamped, and the feathers coloured with perfect pearls and prismalo pencils.


I added some berries, leaves and toadstools, and hope that a mouse soon comes along for the owl's supper!


Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!
Valerie
