Owl birthday card with My Favorite Things

Hi everyone, it's Esther here with an owl birthday card using My Favorite Things I'm Owl Yours stamp set.

I think these owls are the cutest I've seen, and this little chap is no exception.

I stamped a background using the medium and small hearts from I'm Owl Yours and coloured them in with alcohol pens. I die cut two irregular ovals using My Favorite Things Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Windows Dienamic, but keeping the centres for use and discarding the stitched negative outlines. I layered these up under my owl and adhered them to the panel. The sentiment was stamped on vellum, and this plus some die cut hearts were adhered over the owl grouping before popping the whole lot onto a Kraft card base.

The light for taking photos has been a nightmare the last few days with grey stormy weather and high winds... brrrrr! Hopefully you can see the hint of Wink of Stella Orange on the three die cut hearts. The orange is a fab colour for using over reds and yellows as it warms them up far better than the clear pen, but without being too obtrusive.

That's it for this week! Thanks for stopping by.
