SSSC 61 {Wild About You!}

Hi there, welcome to Karens Sweet Sunday Sketch # 61. I had this design in mind the minute I saw the LO, (I've got branches on the brain!) and just didn't get around to actually making the card until now as I haven't had a minute to scratch this week! I was inspired by Carol's owls on this card, and just couldn't wait to have a go myself!



I have used little half pearls for the 'lovebird's' eyes, and emboss resisted the moon on gloss c/s, then brayered the night sky over the top. The branch is from the 'On Board - So Tweet' pack, and I have sponged it with ink, and then drawn over it with my white Gel Pen. I have to confess that this card no longer exists now as master 2 loved the owls so much he had to peel them off, them pretty much scrunched the rest of it :( Thank goodness I took this photo earlier today!!!!

Recipe:

Stamps - Wild About You, big Pieces (moon)

Ink - Versa Mark, basic black, kiwi kiss, close to cocoa, pacific point, almost amethyst, lovely lilac, soft sky, sahara sand

Cardstock & Paper - Sahara sand, basic black, whisper white gloss, Good Morning Sunshine DSP

Accessories & Tools - Half pearls by Kaiser craft, On Board chipboard 'So Tweet', round tab punch, scallop oval punch, oval punch, brayer, clear embossing powder, heat tool, dimensionals

All materials Stampin' Up! unless noted

This is so cute Lee, I saw the owls on Carol's blog too, clever. Love your brayering & the moon. Great use of the branch. I went with boring ribbon as was way out of time. Had to laugh at your multi-tasking comment!
