Owl be making cards!

Welcome to my blog on this special day
of card making.
Of course I had to have something here to share with you.
After a week of making coffee cards, I had to set my mind
to something else. I found a great challenge on the
There was this owl image as a FREEBIE.
You can grab it too, it is
Now there is a catch to it:
if you use it on a card and link it up to
the post on Create with TLC you rceive another
freebie in your email and..........
your card willalsobe entered in a drawing for
a $ 10,- certificae in the CTlc store!

For the background see below.
The image is coloredwit pencil and I used
the woodgrain stencil to make the background
to the image.

I made these backgrounds with alcohol ink.
You put a few drops of ink on your craft sheet
and add a few drops of alcohol blending solutions too.
Then with glossy paper you pickup these colors and 
have a beautiful coloredbackground.
The twopapers on the left i run through the big shot with
an embossing folder with a tree image.
For the right paper I took a stencil and added
some texture paste on top, let it air dry and
colored it with expresso ground distress ink.

So with the first image,my theme was set: owls!

this card is made with the owl stamp
by Michael Strong. The sentiment is from Club Scrap
It's a Hoot kit. The owl is stamped on some
paper I had lying around and embossed with silver. 
Little yellow gemstones for the eyes. The tree
branch is  a die by Tim Holtz.

And the last card, is my first Christmas card for this year.
I found this cute owl set on Create with TLC and just had to have it!
The image is colored with distress markers.

Have a creative day!
