Owls ... for the wise or otherwise ;)

Hi blogger friends, hope you are having a nice weekend... it is 1.17 pm, Sunday today... These are rather childish cards but I fell in love with the owl print gift wrap at the book shop and had to buy it.

The first cardstock is made of pearlised paper (which cannot be seen here) and I have cut out the owl from the gift wrap. Have added pop up glitter fabric paint to dress up the owl. The blue and brown ribbon and gems are from my stash.
In the second image I have chalked the image in pearlised blue (Docraft chalks) and the yellow paper is from Cardmaking and Paper craft.

The  uneven strips of  shiny teal have been cut by hand. Have added glitter on the owl and faux crystal on the eyes. The yellow polka ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are my creation.


Wonder if you will like them?

Monica, these are the cutest owls. I love the lace and the bow - makes it so elegant. The glitter is one of my favs too. The second card is just as pretty - I love the details that bring out the details of the owl stamp - very clever. When you have time to do the flower tutorial, that would be great. I appreciate the gesture to send but you don't have to - just show us how you do it - maybe I can get the inspiration and make some. HEEHEE ;-)
