Mr. & Mrs. Owl

Hello there 🙂  The 20th of the month brings the start of a brand new challenge at the Sheepski Designs Facebook group 🙂 Although we are an ATG challenge (using a Sheepski image, of course), Andrea likes to give an optional theme, and this month   it’s Fur, Feather or Wings.  I managed to cover two of those categories by working with Oliver and Olivia, image no54, from the Sheepski Designs Etsy store. To help out with any shopping that you may want to do at the shop, please feel free to use this discount code:  SKISUSAN10

After coloring this adorable owl couple with my Copics, I cut them out using a cool shaped stitched die.  To give the card a woodsy feel, I embossed a piece of kraft CS with a woodgrain embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers.  I cut out a heart cluster with a Simon Says Stamp design die, from a blue scrap, and inlaid a few of the hearts with the off cuts.  I had the kraft colored flowers in my stash for quite awhile…I grabbed them off of a clearance rack, then proceeded to hoard them 🙂  The white blooms are from a jar of blooms set that I’ve had for forever and a day.  I tried a number of different methods to add the Mr. & Mrs. sentiment, and wasn’t happy with how anything looked.  My alpha dies were way too big to use, and I was at the point of giving up on this particular design, when I remembered a small Merry Christmas die I have.  The letters are all separate, and lo and behold, the right letters are all there!!!  Woohoo!!!  I matted everything up and added gold Liquid Pearl accents to the centers of the white blooms, the heart between the Mr. and Mrs. and on the corners 🙂
