Cute Couple

Don't these two owls, 40-188 Guess Hoo from Penny Black's newest release, make the cutest couple?

To create this card I began by inking the background with Distress Ink (Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick, and Evergreen Bough).  Next I stamped the branch and leaves (Penny Black) using VersaFine and Memento Ink.  The owls were stamped using ColorBox Chalk Ink (Pink Pastel and Deep Lagoon).  Once dry, I added additional shading with Faber-Castell Art GRIP Color Pencils.  The owls were then cut out and added to a swing cut from inked cardstock.

Hope your day is filled with LOVE. :)
Thanks for popping by!
