The beautiful owl image I used on this card is by Mo Manning, of Mo's Digital Pencil, and I bought it as part of a charity awareness event a while back to highlight digital image theft. I coloured the image using Promarkers and Graphit's pens, this time I tried a dotty shadow in shades of grey and blue/grey.
The image is die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilties dies.
The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, owl ribbon sentiments - perfect!
The Designer patterned paper is some that I got in a free goody bag with some beads I ordered, no idea who it is by, but I would love to get some more. This one small square is all I have - so if anyone knows who it is by please tell me.
I matted the paper onto the same dark teal coloured card as the scalloped lable under the image, and added a snowflake brad to each corner. Then I dropped a crystal gem into each eyelet hole and added more to the ice crystal ring and individual flakes.
I used a Sharpie paper white pen to dot snow over the image too.
To make the snowflake frame I used a Joy Craft die called Ice Crystal Circle, which cuts and embosses this beautiful delicate wreath. I cut the circle carefully in half and arranged it over two corners of the die cut image so that you can't see the cuts, then I cut more snowflakes from another circle, and added them to the remaining corners, with a bigger snowflake cut with Ice Crystal die no. 3, both of these are available from the new Noor Designs shop in the UK, where you can find many Joy products as well as Dutch Doodbadoo, paper pads and the beautiful inspirational Noor magazine.
Noor Designs have a DT call out which ends tomorrow, and I would like to apply to be on the team. I have an active blog as you can see, I also have a Facebook page, and I belong to many media sites including Google plus, Pinterest and Flickr. I also belong to a number of forums, UK scrappers, UK Stampers, and several others. I also run the Quirky Crafts challenge blog.
There should be a visible watermark on my card (I thought I had cracked it) - right across the centre of the image, I am struggling to see it, but I will find a better program to watermark with.
The DT call is on the Noor Craft blog, where I am going to link up my card.
