Cheery Lynn Designs Whimsical Delights Blog Hop!

Hello! 

Thank you for joining me and I hope you are enjoying the blog hop for the Cheery Lynn Designs June New Release Whimsical Delights!

If you are following Cheery Lynn Designs blog hop then you should have just came from Amy's blog: amyvoorthuis.blogspot.com and saw her beautiful creation!
To create my card, I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock with the Rectangle Stitch and Cut die. Then painted the entire panel with Robin Egg Blue acrylic paint. Once dry, I embossed the panel with the Wood Grain embossing plate. Using a sanding block, I removed the paint on the embossed area only - giving the panel a two toned look. I layered this onto a Java Brown card base.
Above you can see a close up on the new Whimsical Owl Die. He has been cut from Core'dinations cardstock and roughly sanded to reveal the great detail.  I used two jeweled brads for the eyes. 

I decided to add the nest under the owl from the Bird Nest And Eggs set. I also used the core'dinations cardstock for it. For the top of the nest, I cut it out twice from Kraft cardstock and applied some Patina glitter glue with my finger tip for some sparkle!

The Pierced Banner sentiment was cut from Kraft cardstock and roughly painted with Robin Egg Blue acrylic paint. Once dry, I stamped and embossed in black. I then added the same Patina Glitter Glue to the letters.
