Always a Hoot!

Today's Featured Stamper (FS56) on SCS is Mary Fish aka Petal Pusher. Her gallery is full of great designs and I chose this one to case today. There were so many, but I did this late Sunday night and wanted something quick and simple. Everything was very simple except for the Jumbo Eyelets from SU. I've never used them before, so I was ready today. But I wasn't sure which setting to use on the cropadile, and my paper creased! Ugh! I wasn't going to waste two perfectly good eyelets, so it stayed (hopefully you can't see it very well)! The rules for Featured Stamper casing is to change at least two things. I changed the stamps and cuttlebug folder and used barely banana instead of river rock. For some reason in her picture the river rock looked good with the chocolate and sage shadow, but I didn't like it personally, so I changed it! I colored the owl with my markers: first in chocolate, stamped it, then in sage shadow and stamped again. This is a clear stamp called Birds Galore by Inkadinkadoo, so it was easy to do (no stampamajig needed). I've been wanting to use that owl because I think he is so cute and always a hoot! Thanks for stopping by!
