Fall owl center step card

Here is another fun center step card I made using another adorable Digi-stamp from Craftin Desert Diva's (CDD).  Oh my gosh this owl is so cute and was so fun to color with my Spectrum Noir pens.

The Count your Blessing stamp (Hey Pumpkin Set) is also from CDD as well as the sequins. The background behind the owl is done with Wild honey distress ink painted on as a water coloring... I mixed a little walnut stain to add the dimension... Just a little bit though.   The bottom flourish is from Spellbinders (Shapeabilities Die D-Lites - Flourish Trim)  as well as the flourishes on each side panel (spellbinders metal tags and accents).  At the bottom the small leaves are cut and embossed from a  Spellbinders die ( Jewel Flowers and Flourishes Shapeabilities) and then I rubbed the raised embossed veins with a very light blue ink.   I also added 4 orange buttons from my stash. For the side panels, I wanted something to go over the flourishes besides the sequins that I added to each swirl so I decided on a Cricut leaf cut from A Child's Year cartridge.  On the top layer I cut from a fun fall paper with tiny leaves on it.  I used my brown Cricut marker to draw out the veins and the outline of the leaf... I really like how it turned out.  I also cut a blackout layer a little bit larger in Brown to layer it onto.  The papers used for the two side panels and the bottom strip plus all three flourish cuts and the leaves were all cut from my Fall Paper Scraps stash.... I love being able to utilize my scraps for new cards!!!  I think that is about it for this one.... Thanks for stopping by to see what I am up to in my little crafty cave.
