A PWC96 Birthday Owl

Hello stampers! Well, it's Wednesday already, which is Paper Pretties day; with a new featured stamp set (or two) plus a DT blog hop each week! This week's challenge {PWC96} is a BIRTHDAY inspiration challenge! It is our very own Frances' (stampowl) birthday, and in her honor, we are all being inspired by OWLS! Everyone was instructed to find an owl photoa to use as their inspiration piece for their project today. Here is my inspiration photo, from Lucy Kate Crafts:


And here is my contribution, using Lady Sophia:
Our featured sets this week at Paper Pretties are Lady Sophia and Make A Wish Sophia, so all the girls on the hop are featuring one of those sets. Both featured sets will also on sale for 20% off this week only!

The card info for today - I stamped this little darling in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Accents and highlighting with my new American Crafts white Ultimate Gel Pen. Dazzling Diamonds glitter all over her hat and dress (I put mine on with the Quickie Glue Pen). I sprayed a white Prima flower with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, what fast, opaque coverage it gives and SUCH a shine! As I said before too, it doesn't spit and glob nearly as much as the other sprays I have tried. A lot smoother to use. I added this Making Memories rose to the center of the flower (thanks Heather) and she's good to go! Patterned paper from Basic Grey.

Thanks for hopping with us - one more stop left, please head over to Frances' blog to wish her a very happy day!
