Ozzie Owl and lovely Mail :)

Part of my DT kit that came from
Yesterday was one some of these GORGEOUS little
Collection Ozzie Owls
they are made of chipboard and you get 3 in a bag
so I've got another 2 up my sleeve ;)

I really wanted to Stamp Ozzie, using all different stamps

and surprise, surprise it's brown.... lol!

I used a few different stamps on my little Ozzie a script on for the body, Stamp-it 'siset001rg' for the wings, Stamp-it 'siset002mc' for the front & Brow, Catslife Press Queen stamp for the eyes, all stamped with Versafine -vintage Sepia.

I also used two of the Collections keyholes (glued back to back) with a collections word sandwiched inbetween.

Once finished I gave everything a rub with Beeswax...it adds a lovely 'soft' finish and a beautiful smell.Other things I added were Hinged Rings,an old key, brads,a vintage carnival token,some string and little words...the Journal is made using some Picture Framing Matt Board, which I covered using some PP then adhered little Ozzie

Thankyou again Rein xxx
