Owl-ways here for you.


Good morning!

I'm joining the designers from Reverse Confetti for a Quirky Cuties blog hop!  If you are following along on the hop, you should have arrived here from Sarah Gough's blog.  

I love each of Jen's Cuties sets and thought I'd share a card today using the Oliver Owl set. I love the sentiment fonts and the line art images are perfect for paper piecing or coloring.


I colored Oliver with Copics and used a patterned paper from one of Lawn Fawn paper packs for the background.  The 'dirt' on the ground is some Judikins espresso speckles I've had in my collection for years. It's like glitter, but way more 'manly' - ha!

My second card uses the adorable Freida Fox.


This time I stamped the image on textured white cardstock and did some Copic coloring.  I love the linen pattern that peeks through.  The flourish images in the corners is from the So Very Special stamp set.


Next up on the hop is the fabulous Kim O'Connell!
The full list of the 'Quirky Cuties' hop participants as well as the amazing prizes up for grabs - please check out the Reverse Confetti blog.

Have a great day!
Jessica
