Hoo's there?

I just love these owls! I think I will make some more cards with these two for Valentine's Day. I used a technique I saw on Nichole Heady's blog by stamping the image in SU Classic Chocolate Chip ink on watercolour paper. I then went over the image with my aquapainter and it softened the lines. I coloured the owls using my aquapainter and ink pads. The paper is Basic Grey Mellow and the sentiments is from SU's Friendship Flowers.

I've been busy organizing! I made an ink pad holder out of foam core board and I made a couple of baskets from paper to hold my completed cards for sale in. I'll post pics tomorrow! Hope you're having a great weekend!

Love this card. I like the owls, too, and I love the sentiment. Your choice of this Basic Grey DP makes the perfect background. Thanks for sharing.
