Hoot Hoot

Another card with Art Neko stamps - this week I used the Wise Owl on a Branch with Calligraphy. He's stamped on a piece of wrinkle-free distress card, then I masked him off and reverse masked a moon. First I smudged the moon in with luster rub-ons and then I dusted it with one of the interference Perfect Pearls for some shimmer.
I could have sworn I had some perfect paper with Chinese characters on it but it must have all got used up; while looking for it, I found this beautiful blue marbled paper which said "night sky" to me - so I used it.
There's some embossed black stitching along the card base, picked up by the machine stitching at the top of the card. I added a die-cut feather  (Spellbinders)- and even had some owl washi tape to dress the inside up a tiny bit.

One of our trips in France was to the Camargue. We visited a bird reservation there. Almost all the birds were wild and free, but at the entrance there were a few enclosures with rescue birds which had been injured and which they weren't able to release back into the wild. One of the enclosures had some Eagle Owls.

  1. Your card is composed beautifully. Those papers are perfect. What a great image. And I think the owl pictures are pretty cool too. What beautiful colors and patterning they have.
