fun with funky fossil quirky owls

Happy Sunday folks! I had some fun yesterday with some new stamps from Funky Fossil Designs (I was a lucky winner at Time Out and of course I had to pick up a few things while I was at the store ;).

My first play was with the Quirky Owls. They couldn't be more perfectly named.

I also picked up two stencils, 3D Cubes and Retro Starburst. Gave them a try.

First up, Mr Spectacled. Cuz, c'mon, isn't he the greatest? Decided to perch him on a 3D cube.

And Glossy Accent his specs. The sentiment die is STAMPlorations Skinny Sentiments.

So then I grabbed a soon-to-be released STAMPlorations stencil, inked up a cloudy night sky, added some starbursts to it with gold embossing paste and let Mr Bow Tie soar through the night sky.

I cannot get enough of that gold shimmer...

Then I figured I better try to be a bit more girly with the owls and used distress oxides for a background. When I inked through a STAMPlorations Hearts all Over stencil over the inked background, you can barely see the tone-on-tone hearts. Either my BG was too heavily inked. Or maybe it's an oxide thing.

Since the owl and sentiment (5 Love Words) seem to be just floating through that dreamy sky, I opted for a hint of a nest with some black thread. The sentiment continues inside.

Fun, fun, fun. I just noticed Sarah is having a sale at Funky Fossil. 15% off until midnight Feb 17.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm stopping by at:

Three fabulous cards, great background on the first... it really plays tricks with the eyes. The second card is just gorgeous, probably my favourite... what is not to like from clouds, to owls and twinkly stars. I rather like the subtle blending of the hearts, wish my blended backgrounds would look like yours, so pretty. Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking time to leave a kind comment, much appreciated x

Fantastic colorful cards. Love those stencils, edgy and fun. YOur birds look perfectly at home on their colorful backdrops.
