Have a Hoot!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing fine this Saturday. It's starting to snow again here in Buffalo this afternoon. I hope we don't get too much this weekend! Although I would like to stay home and get some things done around here (besides stamping!). Well, this is for today's inspriation challenge on SCS. The inspiration was tenugui, which are Japanese printed cotton towels. I went on the link and looked at some of the tenugui, and they aren't all towels. The one I chose was an apron. Here's the picture of it.
When I saw the green and brown, I fell in love! I love anything with brown, actually! And I immediately thought of using PTI's Wise Owl, which I have never used (go figure!). The outcome wasn't what I had envisioned. I had in mind to place a ribbon at the top like the arpon. I actually found a ribbon that matched these colors exactly, however it had big flowers on it and it clashed with the owls, so I left it off and placed a strip of brown scalloped with SU's punch in the middle of the card instead. The owls on the white are stamped with Kiwi Kiss and I used Chocolate Chip for the one on top. I used the rectangle and scalloped rectangle nesties as well as the tag die. The sentiments (on the front and on the inside) are also from Wise Owl. I used the houndstooth cuttlebug folder because it resembled the belly of the owl. I sponged the white pieces with the chocolate chip for more definition. I have two birthdays coming up next week, so this may be one of the cards I send. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
