Hi there! Jane is here on the blog today with a beautiful ‘thinking of you’ handmade card featuring our fantastic flying night owl stamp on gorgeous distress oxide ink background…
Visible Image have some awesome A7 occasions sentiment and verse sets which are so useful, as the bold top words are a separate stamp from the verse. You can use just the words, verse or both. I use them lots for the cards I sell at Dotty’s Teahouse, they are very popular. These sets cover all occasions from Weddings to Birthdays to Sympathy (there are 6 in total) and today I thought I would pair the Thinking of You set
with one of my all time favourites the Owl from the Night Owl set.
This is what I got up to;
I made a distress oxide background using ‘Squeezed Lemonade’, ‘Mustard Seed’ and ‘Faded Jeans’ (I know that label looks pink but most of my oxide lids are stained and very well loved!).
I blended them onto a piece of white card, added some water and allowed it to drip down before drying.
I cut it down to 5 1/4 X 5 1/4″ and then stamped the sentiment in the top left corner using black Versafine which I then clear embossed. These sets are brilliant as the sentiment is separate from the verse. So if you want to you can break it up, as I did, for this card.
I stamped the verse in the opposite corner at the bottom. It really is a delightful and very unique verse (written by Helen).
I then stamped my owl using black versafine and clear embossed him. I fussy cut him out adding a bit of colour using my Zig watercolour pens. I also repeat stamped the uber useful branch from the owl set using green Versafine Clair ink and put my card together.
Here is is;
