Owl be here for you!

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:

  6. Yay, hello Rosette my friend, so nice to see you creating again! I've missed your stunning work and I can say even that you haven't been creating much the past seven years (wow is it that long already? can't believe it) you did not loose one bit of your talent. Your bookmark is amazing and I LOVE the hand cut owl. This is so much more personal that you went through cutting everything by hand. Your friend will be delighted. So much detail on your creation, lovely. The color combo is perfect as well!
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend and hoping to seeing more of your beautiful creations :-)
    Big hugs
