I don't make a lot of "boy" cards. I find it a wee bit challenging but I knew if I used some "boy" colours and these spooky sweet Owls for a owl-vampire birthday card this challenge would be a breeze! I started out by making my background paper with the Smooshing Technique with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink. I used Heavyweight Cardstock in Nightshift Blue, Jelllybean Green and Kraft!

I stamped the images of the Owl from the Happy Owl-een Stamp set and the little bats from the Harvest Blessings Stamp set in Archival Brilliance Black pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I find that it is SO much easier to colour with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens when I clear emboss as the raised embossed lines keep the colours from bleeding is totally a stress-free approach to using these pens/markers. I then coloured my images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers/Pens. I cut them image with Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and left the image in the die and inked with Chipped Sapphire and Forest Moss.

I finished the inside of the card too....I stamped a shadow image of the cute little Happy Owl-een vampire Owl and the sweet sentiment.  
Thank you SO much for popping by and havin' a wee peek at my "boy" birthday card for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 372 - For the Boys/Men! Please make a little Krafty time and join the challenge!

Eeek! You made my week (scratch month!).

I have been a follower of yours from the very beginning, all thru your MFT design team days and so forth. I used to check your blog daily (LOL) and love your cards and creations!

I am so honored that you have selected this Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp set called HAPPY OWL-OWEEN...I am the artist that illustrated and created it, so for me it's a huge honor to know that you own and use it!

Thanks again for making my month and putting a smile on my face.
