Here it is, finally. This is the turquoise/brown/kraft/neutral card I was initially going to post on January 27th. It is a recreation of the one I made for Lynell. This one is not for the faint of heart.
First off, the easy stuff. The background is a fabulous new raindrop background stencil that I did in the double glitter technique. I used two shades of turquoise that were very close, so the effect is very subtle.
Now, the details. I used the original white paste on the new owl stencil. I did it twice. On one, I used a Versamark pen on top of the dried paste with various colored embossing powders. When I reached the owl's back, I raked an Exacto knife through the hot embossing powder to create the feathered look. This really worked well, because the Opaque Zing powder that I used actually has two slightly different colored layers.
I used flock in the white parts of his stomach with the Zig Glue Pen. I did the same thing with brown on the other pasting.
Once finished with all the details, I cut them out and pasted them on the other paper. It created a nice 3D effect.
When I assembled the card, I popped the owl up a little, to show off all of his details.
