copper colored art card with owl This is a four by four page for a fat book or a chunky book. In the swap group that I belong to, we are calling them art cards, and there is a monthly theme.

This month, the card was to be copper in color, and the theme was wisdom.

I used some copper metallic paper for the background, then layered some copper mesh over it as shown.

The owl is cut from an advertisement. Wisdom as a theme seems to call for a wise old owl.

I had some copper metallic tags in my stash. I dry embossed one by hand, using a brass stencil and a hand held embossing stylus.  I also had some copper star shaped brads, so I used them as well.

The words “social wisdom” appeared on a flyer of some sort, and it was talking about using wisdom in social media. I thought it apropos.

The swap group is Art for the Creative Mind.
