ASM - Holiday .....

.... Hi!!  I'm beginning to get back to my normal routine now that Mum is back in the UK, it's nice, but I miss her!  Anyway, it's time for our Holiday theme challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  Your project can be based on any holiday - Christmas, New Year, Easter and I've gone for Father's Day which is in a couple of weeks' time.

Stamps: Dare 2B Artzy - Daddy Owl; Uniko Studio - Background Builders: Squared
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Costal Cabana
Dies: Dare 2B Artzy - Owl 2
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Baked Brown Sugar; Copics; Clear Embossing Powder


I've used the layout and colours from this week's CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#76.  I think I might have mentioned that I rather like owls!  Well I found this super cute owl from Dare 2B Artzy and decided it would be perfect for a Father's Day card.  I stamped the image in Versafine, embossed with clear powder, coloured with Copics and then die cut with the matching die.  I made the horizontal panel from my new background builder set, stamping in both the red and aqua and layering onto brown card.  I finished the front by stamping a simple sentiment.  On the inside white panel I stamped a couple more square borders and a lovely sentiment!
