Hoo-Dazzled Owl ATC


Made it today (triumph!!!) after much moping around in my craft room unable to think of what to do. Yesterday I carved a few stamps, one of which was a bubble texture stamp (pictured below), so I thought I'd try and make a Kathryn Wheel-esque background with lots of layers and whatnot. This is what I came up with in ATC form! You can kiiinda see where I used the bubble stamp on this with a platinum metallic stamp pad. Then I drew the owl, cut him out and slapped him on there with gluestick. Oh! Then a guinea fowl feather for good measure.

Here's the ol' handcarved stamperoo! Not my best work, but it's functional enough. The other two stamps I carved are much better, but they're for a swap, so you can't see them until later. Happy Weekend, friends!
