Ride the Wind Owl

Hello Crafty Friends, today I had some fun playing with my newest stamps & Sequins.

I started out by cutting the corner of a 12x12 Momenta scrapbook paper so I could use it for my background.  Just a fun mostly sky scene with clouds and a bit of grass at the bottom and then a fun scallop and lines across.  I thought it would be the perfect base for this creation.  So over in our Group on FB today begins the new challenge which is Ride the Wind.  This is what I came up with to help[ promote our fun challenge.

The Owl and "Sending OWL my Love" sentiment are both from Craftin Desert Diva's Owl-idays stamp set and you can find them here.  The Owl is stamped in Memento Black tuxedo ink onto white cardstock, I then used my scan n cut to cut him out.  I colored him in with Crayola SuperTips markers.  The Balloon stamp is from Echo Park, I used my American Crafts Stamp markers to color in balloons and using my new stamp positioner I stamped just the balloons first.  I then wiped the stamp clean, inked just the strings in black tuxedo and stamped again.  I am in love with this new stamp positioning tool I made with inexpensive products... video that I followed can be found here

This is the stamp positioner I made from watching video above

2 of the 4 stamp sets I used for this one :)
After stamping the balloons I cut them out on my scan n cut and then I took some blue chalk and rubbed the area of the balloon strings so it would blend with the blue background.  I adhered the tip of the balloon strings to the candy stick the owl was holding and tried to make it look as though he is holding the balloons.  I colored in just to the edge of the owls head on the strings to make it blend well.  The sentiment I stamped right directly onto the fun striped cloud.  for the cloud face I used a Peachy Keen - Basic Paper Dolls face.  I didn't have a blowing face so I thought this one would work... it kind of looks like he is taking a big breath in to blow.  the wind swirl was from another stamp set in my stash that I had to mask off because it is actually snow flakes blowing... but I just wanted the wind.  I added blue shimmer chalk to the cloud cheeks and to the windy swirl.

Some of my new sequins... I used some from all 3 of these sets

At the bottom where the scallops are I decided to dig in to my new fun sequins and add all of the balloon colors for the sequins, I really like the touch this added.
