Owls for Atlantic Hearts Sketch #18

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Today's card was made following the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #18.  I liked this sketch right away and originally thought I would feature 4 gifts boxes ( from Close To My Heart M1030 "A Little Gift") but I couldn't figure out how to color them to my liking so I scrapped that idea and chose the owls from Who's My Valentine Close To My Heart January Constant Campaign.  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge (pg.35) to cut the branch and leaves at 2.5" from Desert Sand and New England Ivy CS.  The owls were stamped on Whisper CS with Slate ink and their beaks were colored with an Autumn Terracotta Alcohol marker.  The background panel is Champagne CS with a Barn Red panel.  The "Smile" greeting is from  "Washi Wonder" a Hostess only reward from Close To My Heart (check out page 6 of the new Idea Book) and was stamped in Barn Red Ink.  Wiggle eyes were attached with Mini-Glue Dots and the owls were popped up with 3D Foam Tape.  I  really like how this card turned out!

This is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch that inspired me:

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
