SFYTT September Card

Hi Friends, I have a masculine birthday card to share today compliments of Reverse Confetti. I picked up my first RC stamp set, Oliver Owl. I think he's a great addition to my stamp collection. I need more masculine stamps and thought he fit the bill nicely.

I waited until the first of the month to see if the September "Sketch for you to try" would work with Mr. Owl and it did, perfectly. I also needed a card for my Boss in a few weeks so I colored him with Copics to match my paper. I just love to do that! (I always choose my paper before I decide what colors to use, how about you?)

I stamped the glasses in Momento Teal Zeal ink, cut them out with scissors and a craft knife, then sponged some more ink over them to get rid of any stray white paper. I adhered them on with Ranger Matte Medium. (You must get some!) I added various colors of enamel dots, all from different packages, for simple embellishing.
