U R A HOOT!! and FS64

These Kim Hughes stamps - U R A HOOT! -are so much fun and I love them--why did it take me so long to dive in? I have been stalking these particular stamps since they were released and always deleted them from my shopping cart - dummy am I........

They are so easy to work with, great quality - absolutely fabulous!! I bought them off of the Cornish Heritage Farms website - so awesome!!

This card is for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers who is Michelle, aka (Sf9erfan), and today I used this card for my inspiration.

Again, I stamped a backgrounder instead of using patterned paper. I have so much dang paper that I couldn't make up my mind and so I decided I would really stay close to her card and use a backgrounder instead.

I inked up the Large Polka Dot Backgrounder from CHF with tattered rose distress ink on Papertrey Ink's Blush cardstock.

Over that I used the Scratched Grid Backgrounder with Versachalk wheat ink. I didn't like the look of it (you could hardly see it) so I re-inked with Sahara Sand - a bit darker - and stamped again.

It is a very subtle look, but I like it!!

I layered that onto Chocolate Chip cardstock and set it aside.

I stamped the sentiment "my wise friend", and the tree limb in chocolate chip ink on Blush cardstock. I cut out the tree limb and popped it up on the panel above the sentiment.

Don't you just love the limb and all of its paisley pattern!!?

The owl was stamped in Chocolate chip ink on white cardstock and coloured with copics. I drew in a few "feathers" on the wing tips and used some markers and the blending pen to add a bit of depth on his wings and his cute little tummy!! I LOVE this little guy!

I gave him a bit of glittah! on his eyelids with the copic glitter pen- you can see it if you click on the image....then I cut him out and popped him up so he is standing on the tree limb.

I added a white flower and a pink button and glued them down with a glue dot.

I love this card and now I don't ever want to give it away!! I bet you NEVER feel that way about your creations!! LOL!
