You're a Hoot! with Peter
Hi everyone, it’s Peter from Peter’s Treasury here! I’m happy to share my first blog post here as a new Brand Ambassador. I love to inspire others!
First of all, I started with ink blending some Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron on some watercolor paper using the stencil. I put a little tape at the top so it wouldn’t move. I just blended a radial gradient.
After that, I didn’t remove the tape and stencil just yet, but I put it through my die cutting machine with my embossing mat.
This way, the paper gets little embossed circles, isn’t that cool? It adds quite some interest to the card in my opinion. I cut it out with a plain circle die from my stash.
I paper that I also use for stamping and coloring and cut a stitched rectangle with a die I found in my stash. I used the owl stamp with black ink to stamp a background by stamping, turning and stamping till the paper is filled.
On another piece of the same paper I stamped the owl one last time and I colored him in with my Copic markers. I fussy cut him right at the line because I didn’t want a white border for this card.
I heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set on a piece of black paper with white embossing powder and later cut it out with a fun small rectangle die I found in my stash.
Then I just started layering everything. I used glue tape to put the rectangle on a kraft paper card base, put the circle on with thin foam tape, put the sentiment on that with thin foam tape and last but not least I added the owl with thicker foam tape.
And that’s it! A fun, easy card to make.
I hope I could inspire you to get crafty yourself and I hope you have a great rest of the week! If you have any questions or want to see more of my work, feel free to visit my Instagram.
