Today's card was made for a few challenges starting with this Mojo Monday sketch:
The other challenges for this card were the Roses on Paper Challenge 17 - use hearts (and also one of the specified stamp companies) and the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #18, from which I was inspired to use an owl, the colors blue and green, hearts and flowers.
And here's my card:
I used The Greeting Farm's Forest Friends set because it is one of the specified companies for Roses on Paper and also because the owl is super cute! I colored the owl with Copics and then cut it and the attached branch out completely. Here's a little tip - if your cutting isn't perfect (and mine never is!) and you have some slivers of white showing, instead of trying to cut them off and risk cutting too much (which always happens to me), I just color over the white with a matching Copic. In this case I used a dark brown on the owl and a dark green on the branch because my black tends to bleed too much.
For the rest of the card, I did a bunch of Stardust glitter pen on the top flower and also all over the dots on the patterned paper. The little rhinestones on the corners of the white square are hearts and I also used a hanging heart charm. The sentiment is from the same set and I inked the edges of each piece so they wouldn't be so stark white. I hope you like it and TFL!
