Who Loves You?

Here's my card for this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Draft challenge.  You're going ot have to look hard to see the sketch, but I promise it's there!

Who Loves You? card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I used the long paisley patterned branch from the Hooties set to represent the sketch's long rectangle panel.  It's stamped in brown pigment ink on a light blue panel.  The sketch's square panel is represented by the large owl image from the Hooties set.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out with the matching die, then used dimensional dots to adhere it to the branch.  The "grass" along the bottom of the panel was cut freehand from a scrap of green cardstock.

To bring in a pop of color, I stamped the set's "who loves you?" sentiment next to the owl in red ink.  To go with the sentiment, I added a trio of solid hearts over the owl's head using a stamp from the Paws for a Cause stamp set.  I layered the finished panel on a red card base to tie it all together.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Paper Smoches Hooties and Paws for a Cause stamp sets, Owl Icons dies; Crafter's Companion ultrasmooth white cardstock; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Memento Luxe Love Letter, Pear Tart, and Rich Cocoa inks; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Kiwi Kiss cardstock (Stampin' Up!)
