Guest Design - Owls by Michelle Short

September 21, 2018

Hello there, Michelle Short here and I am delighted to be guest designing with Gerda Steiner Designs today. I am using the new Owl Rather Be With You stamp set for two projects today. The owls in this set are so cute and can be used for lots of different occasions.
 

For my card I started off by stamping one of the owls from the set on to white cardstock with black ink. I then made a mask for this and stamped the branch below so that it looks like he is standing on it. I made a mask for this too. I then stamped the balloon from the Happy Hoppy set three times above, masking these as I went. I also masked off the sides of the panel and then took a cloud stencil and with Broken China Distress Ink, created clouds across the background of the card panel.
 
 
The masks were removed and then the sentiments from the Owl Rather Be With You were stamped above. I also drew lines with a black fine-liner pen for the strings on the balloons. The images were then coloured using Copic Markers. The panel was added with foam sheet and double sided tape on to a black A2 card base.
 
 
For the inside of the card, I took another panel of white cardstock and created clouds across the background. I then stamped the 'you are!' stamp to complete the sentiment from the front. This was added inside the card with tape runner.
 
 
I had so much fun creating the card that I thought I would make a little tag too. I first created a subtle cloud background, again with the cloud stencil and Distress Ink. I stamped the 'thank you' sentiment from the Brush Bunny set towards the bottom. On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped another of the owls and coloured with Copic Markers. I fussy cut him out, but there are dies available. He was then added to the tag with foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by the Gerda Steiner Designs blog today, and a big thank you goes to the team for having me guest with them. Have a great day!
