Owl Be Seeing You

Hello.  Welcome.  I made a tag

Inspired by the Die-namites inspiration picture

When I first saw the picture I though corrugated card, so I used that as a base for my tag.  I liked the worn white paint, so I added gesso.  Maybe I should have crackled it?! 

Then I used gold texture paste through Echo Park Diagonal Stripes stencil, cos the bags are stripey LOL.  I recently won this stencil from Bubbly Funk at The Daring Cardmakers Challenge.  Thanks Caroline.  Hugz

I cut Die-namites Festive Owls twice and coloured with sharpies.  I used a piece of burlap, cos the bags are fabric, and arranged the extra foliage around the owls.   The sentiment is a Rubber Dance stamp, stamped and embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder on vellum.  A bit of overstamping that I thought looked OK.  I am learning to embrace my imperfections.  Hugz

I added some burlap for the tie (not my best ever idea!) and a lovely copper coloured charm from Korthobby.
