Look Whoo's 15!

Finally, I have something new to post.....................just haven't had a lot of creative time lately!

This card is for my nephew Nick's birthday. I struggle a bit with themes for teenage boys as they're too old for the cutesy stuff, but not old enough for the adult themes. I did a music one for him last year, so had to think of something else................hope he likes this one.

It was a fairly quick card to make as I used some Basic Grey paper as the background piece instead of making my own background. The BG paper is called Delish from the Blush range of papers. The chipboard owl is by Collections as is the paper that I used to cover him. The eyes/beak are sprayed with Tattered Angels bronze glitter spray, and I also sprayed the body with it.

The chipboard numbers are painted with Turquoise Lumiere paint and I outlined the edges with a black Sharpie pen.

Stamps used: Word balloon and the 'look' word are by Will 'n Way, the arrow is by October Afternoon, the branch is by Heidi Grace and the 'Whoo's' word is made by using a Grant Card Stamp & Scrap Alphabet.

Other supplies: Nestabilities circle, Kaiser gems, black brads for the owl's eyes, turquoise, black and cream cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by....................if anyone still is!
