OWL-Ways thinking about You

This is the second of two cards I created on Sunday afternoon when I needed to just play and relax!  I have purchased some fun new stamps and dies from Hero Arts, and wanted to make a few Operation Write Home cards. 

This sketch is from Just Add Ink, and was super fun to work with.  This paper is from SEI’s En Route paper line, and came from my “card kit” paper scraps from completed scrapbook layouts.  Since they are scraps, not all of the actual names of the individual sheets are known.  I was able to make 2 coordinating cards from the leftover scraps of one layout.  Yeah!

The images are from Hero Arts Missing You and the matching Frame cuts.  The Owl was stamped in Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Chameleon Pens.  I used Bisque NU1, Cool Gray CG8 and Warm Sunset YO3.  I first flicked a few pen lines into the areas to give a sense of feathers.  The sentiment is stamped in Tsukineko Memento Luxe   Rich Cocoa and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Spellbinders Standard Circles Large is the circle die cut.  The owl image needed a little “grounding”, so I die cut a branch using Quickutz Wildflower die and a creative trimming.  The banner is hand cut.  All the layers were inked with Tsukineko Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa before the card was adhered together.

This card is entered into the following challenges:
