Owls are fun!! :)


Hello everyone!! :)

I have a couple of cards made with the fabulous Clearly Besotted You're a Hoot set to share today- the CBS owl is just gorgeous... I ordered the stamps and die as soon as they came back in stock last month and had to have a play as soon as I could (it's just taken me an age to get the pics sorted... and they still look a little odd to me! :S)... this is what I did... just looking at this owl makes me smile!! :)


Two quick and easy but lovely (I think anyway!! ;)) cards :) I love browns with pinks or teals so the colour choices just happened... :)



I had fun mixing inks directly on the stamps to get the shading on the owls and to get the shade I wanted for the teal hearts :)



Still need a little more practice stamping on my die cuts... it's a bit hit and miss sometimes!! :S lol


{The List}

A6 top-fold Kraft card blank and cream linen textured cardstock for mat and owl
Clearly Besotted Stamps - You're a Hoot, Paired Up and Warm Wishes stamp sets and You're a Hoot die
VersaMagic Inks - Jumbo java, Sahara Sand, Wheat, Malted Mauve, Turquoise Gem & Agean Blue (mixed to get the tealy shade), Hint of Pesto, Tea Leaves and Aquatic Splash
Twine - Docrafts, The Ribbon Girl and Dies to Die For
Crystal Stickles


I'd like to enter these in the following challenges: (Will come back and do this tomorrow when my brain's- hopefully!- more in gear!!)

Right, really short and sweet (for me!!) today as I'm having real trouble with pain in my hands at the mo' (brain's not being too co-operative either, actually :S) but I hope you like the cards and thank you so much for popping in and any comments!! :) Plenty more to share so will be back as soon as I can manage!! :)
