you're a hoot!

Hi!

So here I am with another project I shared yesterday at NB Hobby's Happy Hour...did I mention that Jane's Doodles stamps are being sold there! :)
So this cute owlie is from our you're a hoot! stamp set. I coloured him using Copics and Graphit markers (a new brand to me, I believe it's a French brand, alcohol ink markers...they are new at NB Hobby and I'm loving them!)


So it rained yesterday....great I thought to myself...I'm already nervous as it is (never did any kind of workshop like this before...infront of strangers....Croatian strangers that don't stamp...who couldn't care for stamping)...so I get there and there's a group of ladies waiting to see what I got to show......

that's me...did I mention I use my hands alot when I talk! :)



..so my hands are shaking...my Croatian sounding even worse than usual....I showed them some techniques I like to use when card making....paper piecing, colouring with markers and masking...


..as I stumbled through my presentation...oohhh's and ahhhh's were being heard....smiling faces....hmmmm I'm thinking Croatia will stamp after all....one step at a time....



So back to this card...I took the heart stamp and created my background, stamped the branch onto kraft paper, stamped and coloured some leaves...and voila... 



Have a great day and see you tomorrow...with another project and more pictures! :)

I love this card! Your owl is adorable. Great clean and simple look! You may have found a new group of friends to stamp with!!

I don't see how anyone could NOT love this little owl image...and card-making either! Whatever the language, crafters find each other and have fun! Love the way you did this background...I'll need to remember that!
