Paper Temptress Owl Card

Here's another project featuring some wonderful papers by The Paper Temptress. First let me show you a plain front on shot, then I will show you some photos that show how stunning this paper is. Here's a straight on shot of the card.

Some of what you can't see in the first photo is the stunning black shimmery cardstock (called Retro Black Gossy Lustre) and the laser white glossy lustre cardstock. The white glossy lustre cardstock actually absorbs the ink behind the lines. You stamp the image and the ink is absorbed into the cardstock behind the lines. In this case, I both stamped the image in black AND used copic markers to color on top of the image to add some color. See an enlarged image showing the stamped portion of the card here. The Black retro lustre is wonderful and
shimmers as you move the card, it almost reminds me of those 3d type images we had as kids that would change as you moved the image back and forth. Here's a highlighted photo that shows how beautiful the cardstock really is.

Here's a complete shot of the card take at an angle to show the various textures of the paper. This card also uses a beautiful yellow mica cardstock that shines in the light and a deep red paper with embossed lines on it called Red pepper Columns.

Project Materials: Cardstock (Paper Temptress- Laster White Glossy Lustre, Black Retro Glossy Lustre, Red Pepper Columns, Neenah white solar crest, Yellow Mica); Stamp (Hampton Art Stamps); Ink (Memento); Color (Copic Markers); Adhesives (Pop Dots, Glue All, Glue dots); Buttons (Grandma's Button Bag); Tools (Nestabilities);
