Owl Love :-)

The other day I realised that my Owl Punch hadn't been getting much love lately, so out it came for a play.  After a bit of a look around on the web I felt inspired enough to make this little beauty ... I love it so much, just wish I'd thought of it independently *g*.

The original inspiration is here ... you can see that I've tweaked the idea a little.  The "sky" layer is a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock, which I sponged in layers using Pink Pirouette, Peach Parfait and Melon Mambo ink in an effort to replicate an evening sky.  The card itself came out a very vibrant and warm colour which doesn't really come through in these photographs.

I used the "inlaid embossing" technique to embed the word into the top layer - I always get a buzz out of seeing how it ends up looking almost like it was printed directly onto the cardstock.  The large large heart from the Heart To Heart punch fits well in place of the "v" as you can see.

I'm loving the Timeless Type Sizzix alphabet - it's exactly the right size to use for short words on a cardfront.
