Owl Always Love You

Here’s my card for this week’s Muse challenge. I took my inspiration from the card's owl shape and incorporated the colors and patterns found in the card, too.

I used one of the owls from the Clear and Simple Stamps Taglines: Critters set for my focal image. The owl is colored with Copic markers and its belly is paper pieced with a scrap of red dotted paper. I used foam tape to adhere the owl to a blue die cut tag along with the set’s branch image.

I stamped the “owl always love you” sentiment beneath the branch, then added a speech bubble with a heart inside it at the top of the tag, just above the owl image. I adhered the tag to a piece of golden yellow gingham patterned paper. After matting the panel on a piece of dark brown cardstock, I adhered it to a red card base.

Materials Used:
 Taglines: Critters stamp set, Dare to Be a Diva Red and Perfect Little Black Dress inks, Rouge Ruffles, Dish All the Dirt Brown, My Style Blueprint, and A Blanc Check cardstock, Copic markers (E23, E25, E31, E33, YR21, YG25), Tags 1 die (Clear and Simple Stamps); brown grosgrain ribbon (Michaels); foam tape
