Whoo Hoo?

Let me start by saying i pretty much stamp in the moment, i was at the kitchen island (my stamp room lol) i asked madi (who was buried in a book on the couch) "what does an owl say?" she replied "who who but with an extra o on the end." Sounds logical right? And No, it didn't occur to either of us to go and investigate if it was right or not. LOL So, story being told I made this cute little owl ATC for a swap. I just love this owl stamp from sideshow stamps, he makes me think of Macrame. I used a technique that is new for me, i rubbed lemon juice on the ivory card stock then heated it with my heat gun, until it had an aged look to it. Then i stamped the owl and colored him in with chalks and a blending pen. I added some copper stickles to the flowers on his tummy. Since he is the first one i made the next 8 for the swap will probably be Hoo, Hoo! LOL
