There are just some things that are spooky. I was thinking about that as I made this card. We live in the country ( or as they say around here - in the county). My husband called me outside just as it was growing dusk. He showed me two owls sitting in a tree. Because it was dusk, they were just silhouettes. I had a sense of "wow" but also that spooky feeling. I don't associate the word spooky with spooks or ghosts because I don't even believe those exist but some things like owls and spider webs just give me the creeps. I wonder if there were no Halloween, if I would still react when I see them?
So onto my card. I had fun making this because I saw the challenge at the Cuttlebug Spot , "what is on your desk?" Oh, my. What is not on my desk right now would be a better question. It is covered because I have been trying to use up scraps and pieces of Autumn paper. So there are a lot of little pieces and mini stacks. Then there are pieces of white cardstock on which I have already stamped or printed images. Twine, ribbon, punches, ink pads, buttons, ruler, score tape. HELP ! Where is my desk? I know it under this mess somewhere! Here is the card I came up with:
The digital owl image is by Doodle Pantry and is call Quirky Owl. It comes in outline and pre-colored.
The sentiment is a stamp I picked up in a dollar bin at a local craft store.
The Chocolate cardstock piece is by GKD and I embossed it with a woodgrain Cuttlebug folder.
The orange carsdstock piece is Only Orange by Stampin'Up which I think has been discontinued. I distressed the edges with the blade of scissors (one of the three pair on my desk).
The BG paper was distressed with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
Owl was colored with pencils and then I paper pieces his wings with woodgrain desinger paper.
Well, there you have it, my spooky little owl created out of chaos. At least my desk is a little cleaner but not by much.
Here is a picture I took the other morning. Look at this web! Spooky?
