Japonisme Owl card and fridge magnet

Good morning everybody – it’s Sabrina here today with a card and fridge magnet created using the little Japonisme Owl stamp from Art Neko. In this first photo, I have taken the lid off the little tin so that you can see inside more clearly.

When I got the owl stamp, my intention was to make a little woodland setting for him using the little tin canisters stocked by Art Neko. These little tins are 2 inches in diameter and an inch deep.  I prepared mine by covering the outside of the base and the lid with some patterned paper. I also lined the inside rim. In the back I added a circle cut from the Gold Leaves on a Field of White paper, positioning the circle die over one of the gold leaves.  The owl was stamped on white card with black ink, coloured with pencils and then cut out. I added a little extra cards at each end of his branch perch, so that I could stick him about halfway between the back of the tin and the front. I added a few little die-cut ivy leaves, and added more of these with some little Liquid Pearl “berries” to the outside of the tin – and I finished it off by adding a strip of peel and stick magnet to the back, so that he can be used as a fridge magnet.

Once I’d finished this little gift, I thought I should make a matching card to go with it. So I stamped the owl again and coloured him with pencils. I created a front panel by sponging a piece of kraft cardstock with 3 different shades of brown distress inks to create a faux wood effect.  After cutting a circle aperture in it to nest the Japonisme Owl in, then I embossed it with a leafy embossing folder and added doodled white outlines to most of the embossing. I added another matting layer of some leafy scrap from my box of spare backgrounds. After tying some bakers’ twine around the panel, I popped it up on foam tape and added it to a kraft base which was scored along the top and bottom edges.

    Sabrina! What a charming “nest” you created using a round tin with a clear window. The owl sits perfectly in her next. The card is exactly right as an accoutrement for the refrigerator magnet nest. Well done, Sabrina.
