Owlsome

Yesterday I showed you how I used stamps to create a scene, today I will be showing how I used a stamp as focal image.



I choose a cute little doodled owl stamp.
But first things first, the background.
I started with a layer of distress stain: brushed corduroy and a hint of rusty hinge. Followed with some stenciling with walnut DI and metallic acrylic paint.
A  border of washi tape which I distressed with antique linen contains the page.
Slam bang in the middle I glued my owl which I had stamped on a piece of underpaper (you could not reconstruct the colors if you wished to).

Last but not least, yet another way to use stamps, I stamped the quote: don’t forget to be owlsome.
