BBTB2-Challenge/Storybook

Here we are again, Monday, challenge day. Our fun fun challenge this week was to use the neat owl from "Storybook". If you follow my blog you know I consistently create background papers and have been doing this for 30 or more years, when I was painting watercolors, they were called collages, lol. The Copic markers and airbrush system have thrown me into a new world of thinking and designing and I am having so much fun with it. This is a 5 1/2"X4 1/4" card, I created my background, then cropped with photoshop and printed it directly to my card, I then cut the owl and leaf using "Storybook" and "Wall Decor" and mounted them to the card, the tag is an Elison die and the hearts are from a small hand punch. The tag says, "Whooooooos got your back Baby?", inside it says, "I do - 24/7".

This is the same background paper just cropped differently to make one of my bookmarks. It says, "whooooooo done it?". I hope everyone has a marvelous week. Hugs

Awesome background paper Kelly! I love the way you airbrushed it softly and then cut the owl out to stand forward. Beautifully done, and great take on the challenge.

This is sooo fabulously creative, Sandi! I need a tut on ths technique girlfriend. It would have taken me years to do a background like that. (Almost as long as it take me to decide on paper. LOL) anyway, this is gorgeous, and I ADORE the bookmark too! xxD
