Owl Wisdom

     I just love this "Winter Fairy" image from Fabrika Fantasy with the wise owl on her shoulder!  Of course, I'm pretty much crazy for any of their images so that wouldn't be hard to figure out but my daughter loves owls.  Whenever I run across one in my stamping world, I grab it and make up a card just for her, often for no specific occasion.


     This time I've done another shaped card, fussy cut to match the design in the background dp.  The image and background 'sky' are done with water-colors.  I used a die from Spellbinders to cut the image and then layered it directly onto the background dp.  No added embellishment so it's a very CAS design but one which looks very complex because of the delicate die cut and the soft pattern in the dp.
