Undefined - Owl

Here's a closer look at the Undefined stamp. After a few days of thought I decided to make this owl for my niece. I found out recently that she likes owls... a lot. A Post-it R note is the perfect size for this particular one. First you draw your image in pencil and fill it in really well. Then turn it over on the rubber and burnish it. I used my bone folder and as you can see, it transferred pretty well.

Next you carve out the rubber using the smaller tipped tool that comes in the Undefined Kit (133402). You use the larger tool to clear out excess rubber but with the detail on this I only used the smaller tool.

Then you stamp it! For the stamp itself I recommend and prefer to stamp the image in Staz On TM on an excess piece of clear label from another stamp. I only saved a few pieces for this, I am not a hoarder.

With the bold look of the stamp I decided to put him on this swirly image and I felt that the "hello, hello" was a perfect for this card. I hope she likes it. Ignore the poorly stamped images. I have really been having a issues lately and I just didn't feel like redoing another card.
