Don't forget to leave a comment today for a chance to be one of two random winners of the new owl die set. Winners to be announced on Thursday's Dream Schemes...the time when my designers and our Guest designer, Terri Sproul get together to show you what they've got. Remember I have something else to show you on Thursday regarding our new Dual Alphabet die set.
The basics for doing this owl is exactly like the Sunshine Owl from a couple of days ago.However instead of using the paste just white I mixed my own color of paste with the Wendy Vecchi Archival re-inkers as shown yesterday with the Baby "nest" card. I used her Dandelion colored ink. I often do my mixing on a piece of wax paper or freezer paper and then I can fold it over onto the mixed paste and use it as I need it...this will keep it from drying out.
I die cut the shape of the largest owl out of a sticky mounting paper.
Save the cut frame piece to use later.
Then I remove one side of the release paper and add glitter to the owl.
Add the glitter to the sticky paper by rubbing it into the owl. I used Art Glitter's microfine #515 called Riverbank.
The next few steps are exactly like the sunshine owl from a couple of days ago...once the embossing paste is dry you are ready to add your color, so don't be surprised at looking at the bright punk pink color:
Use the LG751 Large Owl Stencil and paste emboss with the now colored Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (DEP). But in order to place the stencil it can be difficult to align, so I taped the frame from the original cut out onto the stencil...you need to act like this is just part of the stencil I refer to this as a stencil/frame piece. Then place the glittered owl shape face down into this cut out stencil/frame for perfect alignment. BUT don't tape the glittered owl into this frame or it will be difficult to remove when you are finished paste-embossing.
