Swipe-inking Owl


The background is a direct to paper inking technique the demonstrator called swinking (  I have used this technique before but didn't know it was called that and I have since been told that name has another rude meaning.  The owl was given to me by a cardmaking buddy (thanks Val) and is stamped on cork.

Owl Image: unknown

Sentiment: Rosie's Studio

Leaf diecut:  Poppy Stamps

Circle punch: unbranded

Scallop circle Punch: Paper Shapers

Also: D.Inks, Liquid Pearls, thread, DecoArt black mist splatter, white acrylic splatter
