Autumn Owl

This card was made using a digital backing paper designed by Carol (carolivy64 of Circle of Crafters). I sized the picture to fit a 15x10.5cm card (which is roughly 6x4.25"), and printed the whole image out twice on thinnish card. One image I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Distressed Lines folder, and slightly roughed up the edges with my scissor blade. The other image, I cut off the outer band to the inner shadow line and stuck on top of the embossed image. I also printed off two other copies (cropped digitally to save ink) and cut out the circle with the owl and branches, and then just the owl. I also roughed up the edges of the circle, and coloured them with a marker to make the circle stand out. I layered the circle and the owl with thin foam pads. A little bit of Stickles glitter glue on the branches to hopefully look like they are twinkling in the moonlight with frost! I matted the whole thing on to brown Bazzill. The sentiment is a rub-on put onto a piece of the same brown Bazzil.
