Good morning. A short but sweet posting for today.
This card’s main focus is an owl stamp from Hobby Art ‘Orla Owl’. Yes – another recent purchase from a craft show a few weeks ago, and I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to play with him. I don’t know why it’s a ‘him’, but there we are.
I decided to go with a more masculine feel for the card, and wanted the back layer to be quite dark, like the night sky, but not too plain. I embossed the black card with a Die’sire embossing folder ‘clouds’ from Crafters Companion.
The owl is stamped and embossed with a bronze mica embossing powder. I did think about doing some water colouring, but decided the image was intricate enough to withstand being just plain.
The sentiment is from another stamp set from Woodware – ‘Mosaic Owl’. I also embossed this with the same embossing powder, but this time added to a piece of white card. I rounded the edges of both the base layer and the sentiment.
So – nothing complicated or intricate, though the owl stamp makes it seem so, doesn’t it?
I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:
Watercooler Wednesday – anything goes masculine

What a lot of wonderful detail you’ve managed to include in your card! The embossed clouds on the black background really do enhance the sky. But that owl! Wow! The image itself is striking but the way you’ve brought out all those fine details in the owl image with the mica embossing powder makes it even more so. One can imagine the ghostly figure suddenly appearing from the black of the night. Wonderfully done! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
Thank you so much for a very comprehensive comment. 🙂 🙂
Thanks for sharing your masculine card at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week. Great card. Although you’ve kept this card CAS you’ve woven in some beautiful details and touches with the use of copper ep on the owl and sentiment and the embossed clouds in the background.
Thank you, Penny. I appreciate your comment. 🙂
Gorgeous card! Thank you for joining us at CAS on Friday. Luv, Wilma
