This card was created exclusively for Joan's Touch Challenge this week which is to do a fall theme, alter things we have already cut or used, and use an embossed background. This owl was embossed eons ago (and I didn't like the depth of the embossing then) using paper from Michaels. It is one of my first EF's and is a Cuttlebug EF.
I sponged Tim Holtz Tea Die Distressing ink on the embossing and fussy cut out the corner, adhering it over one of the background papers designed by JJ Bachetold in her kit Fall Frolic. That photo paper print is DOUBLE embossed with Tim Holtz Texture fades EF Retro Cirque Set. I embossed one side, turned the paper over and embossed it again. It is very hard to see detail on figured photo paper but the positive negative embossing is a fun thing to try and worked well on this card. The Happy Thanksgiving is a stamp from a bag of clear stamps older than dirt in my stash--I have no idea who designed this sentiment stamp, but it is cut out with Spellbinders Leaves S4-321. The corn and sheaf and bow and acorns and leaves are from the same sack of old embellies that are marked "fall stuff!" in my bin! I THINK they are EK stickers. The leaves under the leaftag are by EK. The detail on the owl corner is touched over with (Sakura) Gelly Roll glitter pen. Almost all of these dies and the inks are available at Joan's Gardens. It was fun to use stash stuff and previously cut or used product that had been at one time rejected. Thanks for the challenge Joan.
