Hi, guys! Happy Thursday! It's Tara and today I am sharing another fabulous project featuring my favorite stamp set, Outrageous Owls. These guys just make me happy! And this set has the best sentiment of all time - You're Owlsome! Love it!
I wanted to try my hand at creating a fluffy cloud background for these cards. To do that, I used the largest Puffy Clouds border die from Lawn Fawn to cut a stencil out of some card stock. You could absolutely just cut some cloud shapes freehand with your scissors and get the same effect!
Once I had my stencil I applied some Distress Ink over the edge all over the background to create a layered look. Funny story: I thought I was using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and thought it looked a little darker than usual . . . Turns out I had put the wrong lids on last time I used the inks and I was actually using Peacock Feathers! Oops! It turned out great though and kept everything really vibrant!
Once the clouds were done I just colored up my images and fussy cut them out. Everything is popped up with foam tape - even those tiny little leaves! The inside of the cards is finished off with an edge die cut and that fabulous sentiment! I love how the edge die cut allows for white space to write a message on the colored card base AND provides part of the sentiment!
I hope you guys enjoyed these fun and outrageous owl cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon! Bye!
