Thank You Owls

Hello its Alli here today and I hope you managed to survive storm Kathrine over Easter and are ready to get creative and crafty. I love how competitively priced the dinkie stamps are and as my big sister says "it`s not what you've got it`s what you do with it" so just because they are small doesn't mean you have to make small cards. I`ve made this card using the new dinkies 3 Owls stamp and they are so easy to colour.

what you will need:
LC Designs Dinkies 3 Owls stamp
LC Designs Wavy Doggies stamp set
LC Designs Black and White paper pack - owls paper
15.6cm x 12.5cm base card
white card to stamp onto
copy paper
black mat card/paper
beige paper
black Versa Fine ink pad
pastel chalks and applicator
black fine tip pen

Stick the black paper onto the base card and mat and layer the beige paper on top of the black paper.

Cut the owl paper to 10.8cm x 14cm and blend the chalk colours over the paper (the paper I have used is no longer on sale so if you haven't got any then use any predominantly white paper with a black outline pattern or white with black dots).
Mat and layer the coloured background onto black paper and then stick the paper onto the centre of the base card.

Draw a line onto white card using a black fine tip pen and a ruler.
Stamp the dinkies 3 Owls stamp twice onto the card so that the feet of the owls rest on the black line.
Using the black Versa Fine ink pad stamp the sentiment "Thank you for being there x" twice under the black line.
Stamp the image twice onto copy paper and cut out the owls. Stick the owls onto the card to make masks.
Cut the image topper to size (about 5cm x 13.5cm) and colour with the pastel chalks as you did for the background paper. Remove the masks and colour in the owls.
Mat and layer the coloured topper onto black paper and make sure that the edges of the black paper match up with the edge of the backing paper.
Stick the topper onto the base card.
