Last Card for the Inkspirational DT call

Now, Mynnette, I did this card last because it kind of scared me lol. I had NO idea what to do with this one. I hopped onto the internet and found a pic of an owl that I liked and went with the flow. I hope you like the cards I have created. I certainly have my fingers crossed :)
Ok, the next challenge for Mynnette's DT call was an Inspiration Photo.
And here is my card -

I started by using Basic Black cardstock for my base card. I found a pad of DP that was perfect for this challenge and decided to use one with grey and a flourish.
The owl, I found on the internet and printed him/her onto blender paper. I coloured it in pretty hard with my Basic Grey Stampin' Write marker and then sponged Whisper White ink all over.
When it came to adding some red, I decided to add little blobs of stickles over the flourish.
I created the sentiment and printed it onto blender paper and sponged it with Basic Black and Whisper White. The little gems in the corner added a little more red. I also added Yellow stickles to his/her eyes.

I wasn't too displeased with the outcome. In real life, the shadows are more obvious and it sparkles a little more than in the photo.

Thanks so much for looking! xx


  1. I posted this card from my laptop and have just logged in via my PC and the colours are very different!! I will try and take another photo in the morning and see if that makes any difference. The base card is BLACK and the DP is GREY lol.

  2. Hi Kylie, no matter what the colors in real life are, I really like this card! Creative use of Stickles, the owl is great and the sentiment is funny! :) Best of luck with the DT call, I hope you make it to the team!

  3. I love your owl card - he goes great with the paper and the flourish. I can relate to your problems with getting a good photo!

  4. Kylie, this is a GREAT take on the photo inspiration!!! LOVE the use of bling and your owl is fabulous! Thanks for joining in my DT call--good luck! I'll be letting you know via email if you're on it by the end of November! :)
