Owls inside and out ATC #1

Challenge: create one owl inspired ATC and then send it in an owl inspired envelope.

My first ATC came out so, so cute😊 I received the background of this ATC from a swapper. It is created using the shaving creme technique.

The owl is cut at 2". The brown base of the owl is in fact a greeting card with double sides, but I cut the left side out. So I ended up with the base for the owl. To make a quirky owl I used patterned card stock for her body part and yellow for her belly. I used the pink card stock to add to the base card for a sturdier base ATC card. I used the ink embossing technique on the edges of this ATC for more depth. ATC completed!

This is the second quirky owl for the owl inspired envelope. Isn't he cute? I cut this second owl at 3,5". Still have to add this cutie to an envelope, but now it is time for my three week vacation. TO BE CONTINUED😙

Handmade colouring book postcard #5

I'm using a digital image "Heathers hobbie haven". It is a digital image I just received through email sent by Whimsy stamps. I also used clear stamps to hand stamp and fill the empty spaces on the postcard. This time I decided to use colouring pencils to colour the printed image.

Two note cards from scraps

I'm not sure whether these are note cards or else. Well, these are cute cards and I made them with card stock and papers left for my previous handmade greeting card project. This post is meant to give you an idea on how I use my scraps, so that they're not left behind waiting in a bucket. I don't post all of my scraps and recycle projects, but most of the time I make little cards to give my scraps a destiny, better than the dustbin💖
