Love Owls

Hi all,
I received a shipment of Hero Arts stamps yesterday and aren't they just fantastic? If you want some excellent eye candy, they do have their current catalogue online.... http://www.heroarts.com/products/2010Catalog.cfm
If in Australia, I am a retailer of Hero Arts.

This card features one of their new stamps....the little lovey dovey owls. Aren't they the cutest? The branch they are sitting on is also HA, but one which I have had for ages. Same deal for the sentiment too.

I did use a Krafty Lady cloud template with Colourbox Chalk ink to lightly sponge some sky into the background. I used a reverse mask to get the colour (also Colourbox Chalk ink) onto the owls, and Tombow markers directly onto the branch to gain its colour. The sentiment is stamped in good old StazOn Black. I added some grosgrain ribbon, flower diamantes and some glitter to to the hearts.

This card also fits my Blogging Group challenge for this month...namely making a lovey dovey...oops...Valentine card without using even the merest whiff of red! Done and done before the 14th too...Brownie points for me!
