A few weeks back I was lucky enough to win a limited edition seasonal distress ink set. I forgot all about it until a parcel dropped though my letterbox and I ripped open the packaging. I ripped right through the label (oops) it's one of the Tim Holtz Fall 2011 sets.
The colours are very rich, I inked up some circles of white cardstock in Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves and Gathered Twigs to try and demonstrate.
Around the same time I had a birthday card to make so I put them to good use and inked up some card and turned it into a owl perched on a branch using a template from Craftwork Cards. The centre of the owl eyes and the flowers are some of their card candi popped on some foam pads.
The template was also good for a bit of doodling on the back of the envelope which I hope will put a smile on my friend's face.
Which brings me last but not least to another owl cushion. In fact the whole reason I wanted to create one was because my friend pointed one out while we were out together and I made a mental note to try and create one for her - for her birthday. So he is the original :-)
