Love Owlays

Ack! Isn’t that Aall and Create Owl You Need is Love owl just the cutest? I would love to cuddle him but I’m a little afraid of owls. They’re so beaky plus one nearly collided with me as a child. Chomp chomp!

 I started by diecutting the Lawn Fawn Polka Hearts Backdrop with kraft cardstock and adhering it to a white base. Next I diecut the MFT Hearts Entwined Die from Doodlebug Design Cream and Sugar 6x6 paper. I wanted the sentiment to stand and owl to stand out so I laid down a strip of vellum. Not that the green LOVE needed more standing out. That’s leftover from my recent monkey card.

I used another leftover LOVE in white beneath the green. And, of course, I replaced the O with the owl which is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I took it a step further by embossing the sentiment and laying it over the LOVE. I love that there are lots of layers but not a lot of visual mayhem going on.

I'm entering this in Freshly Made Sketches #371

  1. Wow! I am in awe of how you colored that owl, Toni! Simply outstanding. Looks great with the hearts behind it (I just got that die too- I love it!). Such an adorable card! So glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. That owl is wonderful - and so beautifully colored! (I already found the set and added it to my wishlist because of your card!) I love him as the "O" with all of the hearts in the background. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
