This is my first post as a Guest Designer for Quirky Crafts Challenges! You have until March 1 to post your project with the theme of 'Layers'. The challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and I was given one of her images to play with. This 'Smart Owl' really tickled my owl fetish I've had lately :) I had this paper from Kaisercraft called 'What a Hoot' that I had picked up because I LOVED it but no plans. This image gave me a plan to do with it. I started off by printing 4 copies of the image onto copic paper, about 3" square (the nice thing about digi images... you can resize to your use!)
I coloured the images with my Stampin' Up markers, then cut out layers from two of them. Once finished colouring, I cut out a full image with Spellbinders Labels 2. The spare image was roughly cut out and used as a mask to cover the colouring and then sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang: Treasure Island Turquoise.
I covered a card front with a 5x6.5" piece of the pattered paper, then a 4.5x6" of the reverse side. The ribbons running down the side are from Magenta and Maya Arts. The die cut image was matted with a piece of the same paper then pop dotted onto the front of the card. The pieces I cut out of the other coloured images were then pop dotted on top of the main image.
