Some owl tags for the LIIU Challenge No.3
Decided to make myself a lazy day today after a few very stressful days with too little sleep, a lot of work and no time for crafting! So I declared today to bath and craft day, and up till now it has been very relaxing. Been playing with some new TH embossing folders, and made 2 tags and a card inspired by the LIIU challenge, which involves using your favourite stamp and a charm. My favourite tag at the moment is the owl, which I have used here. The small tag has been embossed with the TH notebook folder, distressed, and then embellished with some black netting, half a lace doily, an owl which has been stamped, embossed, brushed with perfect pearls and then cut out and mounted onto the tag. The eyes have been enhanced with soot black stickles, and the owl is holding a key-charm in his beak and some flowers in his claws. The card has been stamped with a script stamp using resist ink, then distressed, and a silver moon and the owl stamped over it. The owl has been embossed and brushed with perfect pearls, and the card has been completed with some hand doodling, a prima vine and a TH *On the edge* die cut, for which I used cardboard which has been embossed with bronze and silver. The third tag has been stamped and embossed as before, and then placed behind a frame, which has also been stamped, embossed and cut out by hand. Added some flowers, a bow with a rose charm and a white down feather as decoration.
