By the light of the silvery moon

A birthday card suitable for a man, or girl that loves owls.


Love this Aurora wings image steam punk owl, coloured with promarkers in grey shades. I fussy cut the owl and had purposefully printed him so his wings would slightly overlap the edges of the card.

 I decided to keep to monochrome and thought it would look good if the owl had a full moon behind him.

I tried different cards and vellum and decided on this mat silver card, enough shine but not full on. I die cut a plain circle and added to the upper of a black base card, then used sticky pads of different thicknesses to attach the owl adding to the 3D effect of him flying towards you.


The sentiment is Britannia dies and uses the same mat silver card. it is framed top and bottom with white and black satin ribbon the black ribbon is recycled from a knitted dress the loops that would hold it to the hanger but always seem to poke from the neckline when not wanted.

I think I might be getting the hang of Clean and Simple.
