Owl Love

I have a confession - I don't usually make Valentine's Day cards but sometimes you have an image cross your crafty desk that just screams at you to make it a Valentine's Day card. 

That is what happened with Love Birds. I kept the layout very clean and simple (for me) - they are just too cute and I wanted them to really be the focus of my card. I also have them sitting on the perfect branch  - it has a few leaves to give this sweet couple some privacy <smile>






After colouring my stamps with alcohol markers I hand fussy cut them. Their tails had to be cut off so I could put them behind the branch. I set them aside and blended some inks to create a light airy background. I added some hearts above their heads for fun. The sentiment was masked off and stamped directly on my background - thankful for my Misti for this one! The heart they are holding is coloured with a sparkle pen - so hard to get a good photo of! Some simple gumdrops finish off my card.
