Sample No.3 for Sarah - an"Owl Tent Card"

Good Morning Girls, Im so glad that you are enjoying seeing these samples Ive created from Sarah Hallams new Cd "Feather Friends" the images on the cd are stunning and Im sure it will be a great success when Sarah previews it on Create and Craft on the 17th June at 9am, I want to wish her all the success in the world, its been a long time coming and she so deserves it. Ive been a great lover of her work for at least 5 years and this new way of presenting them on Create and Craft is the way she can allow everyone to enjoy her beautiful work.
Anyway this sample has been created from this beautiful Owl image, Sarah actually draws all these birds then buts them into her graphics program and colours them, and then creates all the extras from the same drawings, the backing papers, the tags, inserts, ribbons etc its a fantastic collection believe me, Ive only picked six of the images but there are a hell of  a lot more on there. Anyway Ive printed the image onto photo paper and cut it out with my Nestabilitie Oval die, and created a mount for it out of beige pearlescent card with a Scalloped die then mounted them together with some foam tape.
The actual tent card is a 7.50"x 7.50" size card and Ive used two of the backing papers for the inside and out, Ive mounted both of these on some more of the same beige card, and on the front Ive cut a oval aperture for the owl to be suspended from, around the edge to cover up any crooked edges Ive put some thin peeloffs.
To finish of Ive hung the owl from the middle of the aperture, and created two flowers from some of the left over paper and my Nellie Snellen flower punches, in the centre Ive also put some yellow stickles, then mounted them on some punched out fern leaves.
