So many books, so little time…

Hello once again. A new challenge has started at The Alphabet Challenge, We have reached the letter ‘B’, and the theme chosen by Melanie is ‘Birds’. Here is my card:

I wasn’t quite sure which way I was going with this theme – but when I searched through the Color My Life app – I realised I had lots and lots of stamps which had birds – some in sets, some alone – but this particular set from Clearly besotted caught my eye.

I stamped the owl images and the books with Gina K amalgam ink – a brown ink – then coloured with Copics. I used the warm greys for the owls, and played with some vibrant colours for the books. The owls had the matching die set, but the books I cut with the Brother Scan’n’cut – all good…..

I played around with placing, and decided they needed a little grounding, so I used the Heffy Doodle ‘More Strips of Ease’ dies and cut some shelves using some wood grain paper.

The sentiment is also from Clearly Besotted, and I placed it so it looked like one of the owls was pointing to it……or maybe that’s just how my mind worked!

Forgive the light rays – I had the window shutters open a little and didn’t realise – but I think it adds something…..again – maybe it’s the way my mind works!

I hope you can come and join us for our ‘B for Bird’ theme – I look forward to seeing your creations. xx

  1. Such a cute bird-themed card! I’m sure every bookworm knows the feeling of not having enough time to get through all the books! The floating shelves work so well with the scenery – a tiny detail and yet the card would look a bit empty without them. The owls are just adorable, but they’re so absorbed in their studies that they make me feel kind of guilty for not reading as much as I used to.

    Hugs, Veronika

  2. Hi Lynda! I love these owls and this card is one of my favorite themes…reading! I don’t thank I can remember a time when I didn’t read a book at some time during the day! The sentiment is perfect with this and I love the CAS design! Take care and have a great weekend!
