Steampunk Owl ~ Slimline card!

Ble litt vanskelig å ta bilde, så mye gull og glimmer! Slimlinekortet mitt her er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #212., og det flotte ugle motivet i steampunkstil, som kombinerer to ting jeg er veldig glad i ❤️ ~ det er fra vår nye sponsor LC Waterworth. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema ~ og med hele 4 uker frist! God Sommer! ~ velkommen skal du være! ☺️

(norwegian text = Happy New Year)

I had printed out the owl on plain copy paper also, fussycut and used that as a mask when stenciling the background around the owl.

  4. Fabulous card! I love the owl that you created against the swirly florals stenciled backdrop - gorgeous 😀. Thanks so much for joining us at Country View Challenges! Hugs, Jo x

  5. What a head-turningly awesome design. So cool, creative, and downright beautiful. Owls are a perpetual favourite of mine. We're blessed to have a few that often spend time in the tall evergreens of our backyard. To date I've only (briefly) spotted one on two separate occasions, but we hear and delight in their telltale hoots often. They're a perpetual source of happiness and inspiration to me - very much including on the paper crafting front.
