Koala’s have always been my favorite animal and I have pictures or statues of them all over the house. Lately though I’ve been drawn to owls. Maybe I’m looking for their wisdom. Anyway, at the recent Stamp and Scrapbook Expo I found these kits with some really cute owl overlays. Overlays are clear acetate pages with pictures or words printed on them. You lay them over papers to get different effects.
The first step is to cut apart the pictures.
I stamped a sentiment on a smaller card and adhered it to the inside.
Here is the finished first card. I used some of the colored stickers on the envelope and chalked the edges of the front of the card black. I thought it came out really well. This is the first time I have worked with these kits and they are pretty easy to use. Other than tips about how to put the glitter paper on the back there are no “directions” with the kits so you can do whatever you want with the pieces. They give you a lot too so I know I’ll have some extras.
I decorated the corners of the front with these stickers and used some glittery pen to color them in.
I used some chalk ink to go around the edges to give it a little pop of color and a more finished look.
For the inside I used a tag and stamped another sentiment on it.
Here is the second finished card. I used some washi tape on the envelope. I’m pretty happy with this one too.
But just so the Koalas don’t think I’ve forgotten them, these two have prominent spots in the studio as well!
Another letter down! This year the A to Z 10th Anniversary Challenge has been going very smoothly. One year I didn’t finish all the letters in time and had to go back to add them. I don’t think I’m going to have that problem this year, thank goodness. Hope you liked these behind the scenes examples. Come back tomorrow for the letter “P.”
