Look Into My Eyes....

At Stampotique this time Kaz has chosen birds and buttons as her theme. At first I thought they would all have to play without me 'cos I don't have any bird stamps,  but then I remembered Wee Owl... phew!
My background is a mop up page on some cartridge paper and look - white space!! not often I leave any of that!
My tree has been stamped in coffee archival, then painted in cappuchino Perfect Pearls mist.
Wee Owl has been stamped onto a scrap of the paper, then my clear button (stampin' up) has been glued over the top. The button holes match his eyes perfectly. Did I know this in advance - was it perfect planning- of course (not).
The words are Timmy stickers outlined with a black Pitt pen, and that was it, all done. Very less is more for me, but I like him just the way he is.
Head on over to Stampotique for lots of inspiration, and the chance to win a $30 certificate.
Thanks very much for looking and have a fab weekend x


  1. Love this one, how fantastic that the buttonholes became eyes - must be a magic owl! Hugs, Valerie

  2. So Clever...
    I love it when you find a stamp that will work perfectly. ;D

  3. Love it - just the right colors. It definitely doesn't need any more additions.
    Best, Suzanne

  7. This is just fab Sue. I love how the button's holes fit over his eyes perfectly. Thanks for joining us again at Stampotique x

  8. Loving that owl. What a great way of highlighting him too. Hugs, Buttons x

  9. Another fab tag Sue, love that you've used a mop up page for the background and remembered that an owl is in fact a bird - lol.

    I know I don't have birds either, so unfortunately I'll not be able to join in this time around which is a real shame as I love their challenges.
