Make My Monday - Owls

I am thrilled to announce that I am now a part of the Make My Monday design team - so happy to be creating for them! The theme this week chosen by Laura is "Owls". Now my other half is very keen on owls and indeed has quite a collection of all things "owly" and I bought this stamp from Little Claire Designs some time ago to make a card for him.

I brushed inks over white card to get the background, then stamped some leaves around the top and some grass at the bottom to ground the mother owl. The tree and owls were coloured with Promarkers and the owls were stamped again and fussy cut to give a bit of dimension.

I hope you like my first card for Make My Monday and be sure to vist the rest of the team for some wonderful inspiration.
I'm also going to pop over to Pixies Snippets Playground as snippets were used. 

Supplies used:

Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Inks: Soft Sky, Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Old Olive, Gumball Green, Soft Suede
Stamps:  Lovely as a tree ( for leaves) By the Tide ( seaweed used for grass!) Owls and sentiment (non SU)
