Hi Everyone sorry it has been a While since I have blogged but in my defence , We went to the N.E,C last week and came back ill .....This is a card that I have made for an elderly Uncle bless him he will be 87 on Tuesday So Happy Birthday Uncle Harold xxxx Love you loads.

The Stamp is from the Barbara Grey Clarity Stamp Collection. Its a set of Three stamp's the frame with the oak leaves, the Owl, and the poem.
 I stamped out the frame of oak leaves twice to make a squarish! frame then coloured  and cut around it then matted it with textured gold card and put it to one side, I then stamped out the frame again just once Coloured it with promarkers and cut as close to the leaves as were possible so as to make a decoupage piece. Put that to one side also.
Stamp colour and cut out the owl..
Stamp  Poem in Metallic copper and heat emboss. matt with Gold textured card and a gold ribbon at the back.
The card is a wood grain card that is always in my stash, it is a cream colour that seemed to go well with the Autumn colours of the oak leaves .  Again taking the Oak leaved frame I inked HALF of the stamp and used it as a corner stamp. then wiped the stamp clean and inked the opposite side for the other corner.....Again coloured in with promakers.  With all the colouring done it just leaves the assembling to do so .....Put the owl just behind where the second lot of leaves are to go and stick him down with squares or decoupage glue .....then add the cut out frame over the top of him so as to cover his tallonsnow he should look as though he is standing IN the bushes.......add the sentiment with the ribbon attched and there finished I hope you like this one as much as I enjoyed making it xx
