Sweet Heart Owls

I wanted to make and send some Valentine's to my children and their families and decided for my daughters these cute little owls. I saw them on Michelle Zindorf's web page and had to case them. So this is my version with drawing the tree and swings. Thanks Michelle for all your inspiration for making me think outside the box. I made them thinking of you and Valentine cards all rolled into one. Since they are out of state I thought they would love these.  Hope you like them!

Card Stock                   Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Lucky           
                                     Limeade,Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Stamp Set                     You are Loved
Ink                                Lucky Limeade, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise
Stampin Markers          Basic Black
Punch                           Owl Builder
Embossing Folder        Fan Fare
Other Tools                  Sponges, ruler, snail


First cut your base card out of Tempting Turquoise, 51/2" x 41/4"
Second Layer out Old Olive,  51/4" x 33/4"
Third layer out of Whisper White,  41/2" x 31/2"
Using the Owl Builder punch out owls out of Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black
Now take the Whisper White and use the Direct to Paper Technique (Take your ink pad and move across the card stock or sponge it) this will give the sky effect. You can see Michelle's tutorial here she shows how to do this step by step.
Next sponge each owl with Old Olive and Cajun Craze.
The vests one in lucky limeade and the other in Cajun Craze.
Assemble your Owls.
Then stamp or draw your tree limb.
Next using a ruler draw your swing.
Stamp your sentiment
Adhere your Owls and finish the inside of card.

I know it seems long, but it was worth it don't you think! Thanks for stopping by and there are a few more Valentine's coming.
