Hey Everyone! Justin here, and today I’m sharing this fun creation using the new OWL-Right set, part of the Rabbit Hole Designs’ March 2020 Release!
This little bunch of owl are so stinking cute, and I love that the possible color palettes to color them up are just endless. For today’s card, I decided to throw a masculine color palette on them. Now, for me, this color palette could really be for anybody. When I create something that I want to give to a guy, I just make sure to not use any overly feminine themes.
First, I cut out a 4.125″ x 5.375 panel and stamped my group of owls from OWL-Right in the lower center of the card. I colored the owls up using a red, denim and neutral gray color palette with my alcohol markers. Each owl only uses a 3 color blend for their feathers. Then I went in and added some details, such as a warm gray shadow underneath the lower row of owls, and light blue eyes for all of them that wash out to white towards the end.
Next, I wanted to use the set’s sentiment “From OWL of us”, because you can really use it for so many occasions: birthday, anniversary, retirement, congratulations, etc. However, I wanted to also use the Spell It Stencil to spell out “OWL” since I knew I would have the space. So, I lined up where my sentiment would fit, and carefully blended my O, W & L in red ink with a blending brush.
Tip for the Spell It Stencil: I’m sure that you’ve seen a lot of the Design Team and Rabbit Hole Crafters use the Spell It Stencil to spell things out on their projects, and one of the reasons why is that it is incredibly easy to do! Because the stencil is structured where each of the letters is broken into horizontal rows of lines, it’s so easy to make sure that your letters are all lining up and not “wonky”. For this card, I actually blended my “W” first, just to make sure it was centered. I then went in with my “O”, finishing with my “L”.
For the rest of my sentiment, I stamped out “From” and “of us” onto a navy blue strip of cardstock and heat embossed it with white powder. I cut the strips into small segments and mounted them to the card with foam tape.
To finish this card off, I adhered my white panel to an A2-sized navy cardstock panel, applied some red accents, let them dry, and mounted the card to an A2-sized card base!
