This cute hoot owl stamp became the star of my ATCs.
The candy wrapper swap at Archiver’s is this Wed. and I actually got my cards done a day early (not the norm!).
I stamped and colored this cute little owl, cut him out (thirteen times to be exact) and glued him onto black ATCs.
And now for the hard part….
It was a struggle to consume enough candy for these cards, but I managed somehow.
I added glowing moons, bats flying in the distance, and stars in background . Then, I used my .05 ZIG pen to add more detail and long eye-lashes. I used my paper piecer to poke holes for stringing on signs, cut out the beaks and stuck them on with foam tape, and finally, with the help of my x-acto knife, I cut out his talons and stuffed a candy wrapper in his clutches.
I think owls deserve a little treat after their hard night’s work, don’t you?
I’m starting to miss my smaller swaps. Making 13 cards takes me a while! It’s a good thing they want them all pretty much the same.
One thing I’ve noticed at these swaps is that they prefer cards with lots of dimensional stuff. The more stuff that sticks up off the card the better. Can’t wait to see the other wrapper designs!
