Wise Friend

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A good productive day both house wise and craft wise.  I have managed to make a few toppers so tomorrow I will be spending the day making cards with them.  Last night hubby and I watched part one of the final book of Harry Potter, tonight we will watch the final part.

Tonight's card I have made for the one word challenge set by Angie who won last night's challenge.  She chose the word Owls.  I just had to use this owl from Sam Poole's Wise Friend set.


1. 6 x 6 Gold ribbed square card.
2. Matted and layered orange and brown pearlescent card.
3. Stamped owl which is from Sam Poole's Wise Friend stamp set onto acetate and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Painted the back of the owl with acrylic paints, once dry added floor wax cleaner to the back then added orange, gold and brown mica powder, put a tissue over this and left to dry.  Once dried cut to a square and attached to gold mirri card with brads then matted and layered onto brown card.
4. Stamped feather onto tissue paper and embossed with gold embossing powder cut out and stuck to card.  5. The leaves where stamped onto scrap card which was left over from a card I made a couple of days ago which has radiance inks ginger spice and ginger flower, cut out and placed down the side of the card.

Thank you for stopping by Today
