Twin Owls


I pulled out my SU! owl punch and had a play with it recently, making this birthday card for my stash. It started with a water-colored background piece of cardstock that was embossed with a Sizzix folder. I used several different distress inks and finished it with a few Copic highlights. The owls and branches were done with snippets, and the upper tree branch was done with a MB Woodland branch die and some soft suede cardstock, where I added some punched leaves for greenery. The stamped sentiment from SNSS was heat-embossed with white ep on black and it's all on a pumpkin pie card base.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Thanks for the visit today and I hope your day is just perfect!

Seems like these two hooters have lots of places to be! Good for you, playing with the Distress Inks. Great background. Still can not believe they altered this punch.
