Hi! Eret here with my last card made for the Sparkle N Sprinkle September reveal. I used my favorite stamp set from this reveal - Great Horned Owl Stamp Set.
Great Horned Owl Stamp Set #912;
Black Detail Embossing Powder [EP171];
Midnight Madness Embossing Powder [EP252];
Irish Isle Glitter [G1141];
Champagne Glitter [G1045];
Black Diamonds Microfine Glitter [GM2046];
1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT04];
Aqua Flow Watercolor Brush Pens - Surprise Party [896N], Winter Sky [891N], Ocean Air [897N];
Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink [201N];
Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink [101N];
Silver Smoke Nuvo Mica Mist [572N];
Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky];
Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707E];
I stamped the owl from the Great Horned Owl Stamp Set with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink and colored it with Nuvo Alcohol Markers. The tree, where the Owl sits on, was a bit short for my need, so I drew it a bit longer. After fussy cutting the owl, I took Sakura Glue Pen and adhered some Champagne Glitter to his feathers.
The background is painted to the Watercolor Cardstock with Aqua Flow Watercolor Brush Pens. I layered the colors to the wet cardstock and let it dry a bit and added more colors and Silver Smoke Nuvo Mica Mist in between. It was fun to experiment with them. After everything was dry, I inked the edges with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid ink. As the last step, I diluted some White Gesso with water and splattered it on top of the background.
Mica Mist gives a very nice subtle shine to the background but I wanted more sparkle. I stamped the branch from the same stamp set several times to the edges of the background with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed them with Midnight Madness Embossing Powder. Inside of the leaves is colored with Sakura Glue Pen and Irish Isle Glitter. The same glitter has also adhered to the card base on top of the 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape.
