Hello crafting friends!
Second week of January already... and here I am again to share with you my second project after almost seven years of missing from the crafting world :)
A friend of mine, after seeing the bookmarks I did for the sisters for Christmas, asked me if I'd do one for her. Of course, being herself such an amazing person, I agreed to do a personalised bookmark just for her. I asked her for any preferences, and she replied that she loves owls! :)
I went through my stamps, my papers... no owls around! Duh!!
Well, I said to myself: it there are no owls in my crafting things, "owl make one myself!" :) And so I found a template and cut out every tiny piece of the owl myself, out of cardstock and craft paper. NO the owl is not a die! :)
I hope my friend likes the result.. we'll see!
I used papers from Basic Grey papers from the Bittersweet collection, and as for the tree branch, a dimensional sticker from Jolee's Boutique.
You can observe better the dimensions created with the sticker and from the owl itself, popped up with foam pads.
I stamped a "thank you" sentiment around the image, as this particular person is also a benefactor of our Children's Home, and she is one of our "angels", always trying to contribute and help around.
I stamped some tiny butterflies and used Stickles on them and around the edge for some bling.
I distressed a ticket with Distress inks and added a doily, lace, fibers and organza ribbon - what is a project without them?
I finished off with a leaf charm, a swirl and some other small embellishments for a sweet finish.
And voila'!! Another project dusted.
Adding it to some challenges for some fun:
