I pulled out several Lawn Fawn sets - Critters in the Forest, Hats Off to You and Fanciful Frames. To make the wood frame, I took a PTI Impression plate and embossed the wood onto kraft paper. I then used Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress inks to color over top. I added some detail with the Vintage Photo distress marker. The coolest part of this frame happened when I decided to put Glossy Accents on it. It looks like a real glossy frame!
For the little owl, I first stamped the mortarboard and then masked it and stamped the owl. He's colored with Copics - the burgundy hat for my daughter's school color! The owl and log (stamped on the inside of the frame) were then cut out. I brought out a Heidi Swapp star stencil and sponged some ink in the corners of an off white strip. I went over them with Wink of Stella, because God forbid I make a card that doesn't have some sparkle to it!!! I really need to use stencils more often! A little strip of gold glitter paper along the side and the card is done!
I'm entering this card into two challenges - Lawnscaping - Stars & Stripes (play along here!) and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (play along here!)
Hope your week is off to a great start!
