Good morning!

Have you noticed how popular owls have become? Every stamp company has an owl stamp - but Gina's are my favorite! These owls have personality, don't they? Those eyes and bellies... so adorable! The two cards I'm sharing with you today are made with one of the owl stamps from her Owl Always Love You stamp set.

The first card is colored with Copic Markers and shaded with Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks & CraftT Embossing Paste. A Spica green pen was added to highlight the middle of the leaves and the orange pen highlights their talons. To add a subtle shine to their eyes, beak, talon, and leaves, I used Sakura's Clear Glaze pen. This pen is great because it dries quickly - which is great for classes!

Card Details: Owl Always love You; Stazon; Koh-i-noor Pencils, OMS, blending stumps; Crystal Lacquer; Cuttlebug, Petite Oval Nestabilities; SU spiral punch; SU kraft tafetta ribbon; SU vanilla cardstock; CraftT Embossing paste

The second card is embossed with a petite oval nestability and colored with Koh-i-noors, OMS, and blending stumps. Their eyes, beaks, and talons are coated with a layer of Crystal Lacquer. I'm not sure why it looks 'milky' in the picture - it's clear in person. The edges of the vanilla cardbase is shaded with a touch of Metallic CraftT Embossing Paste.

Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!
