Owl always be here if you need me.

Who (whoooo, whooo) wouldn't love a card with two cute owls? I mean look at their toes, you love them, you know you do.

I stamped them and then colored with copics. I hadn't planned on coloring the sky blue but with my owl stamps also came a BOAT LOAD of stickles I had ordered. So I wanted to do a glitter moon. A glitter moon would look silly on a white background... *if you give a stamper a stickles, she will want to make a moon, if you let a stamper make a moon, she will want a night sky...* So I punched a circle from post it note paper and stuck it on for a moon, then colored the rest with copics. Removed the circle, colored the moon with a yellow copic, then over that with glitter. *I have like 5 clear/white/sparkle shades of stickles now...I THINK this is diamond, but there is no telling. I'll try to be better about this in the future.

The rest of the card is pretty easy, some HUGE yellow ribbon like fabric stuff, Cornish Heritage Farms backgrounder. (I LOVE CHF backgrounders.) I stamped the phrase (which comes with the owls in a set) with white ink. I never super love how white ink turns out. If someone has a GREAT white ink let a girl know! This is Moonlight Brilliance or something like that. It's just ok.
Supplies: Owl Always Love You stamp set by Gina K, Large Polka Dot Backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms, cardstocks is by Stampin' Up!, I don't know where that yellow ribbon stuff came from, and we already discussed I don't know which clear/white stickles I used. Ink, (does anyone care about the ink?) is versamark on the backgrounder, that white moonlight brilliance stuff for the sentiment and adirondack pitch black for the image. BTW I do like the adirondack best of all the inks I've used for coloring with copics.

Those owls are really cute. I love the glittery moon.

I've been eying the CF backgrounders too, but I bought some Copics last month, so I need to be good.

It's not easy (or fun) to be good.

At least you get to celebrate your birthday next month!
