The Card Concept #40

Hello my stampy friends!!! It is time for a new challenge here at

Here is our photo inspiration:

Is this not the cutest???

When I saw this photo, I was inspired by those cute little animals!
 So, I immediately thought of this adorable stamp by Art Impressions called Five Whoots!

I just love their big eyes!

I made this card by first stamping the image onto white card stock and then stamping it again on a post-it note to create a mask. I placed the mask on top of the stamped image and sponged around it with Tumbled Glass Distress ink to create a sky background. 

Next, I colored the owls with Copic Markers. I added some black Wink of Stella to their eyes to make them pop!
The branch that they are sitting on is a Memory Box die that I have in my stash. 
I carefully cut around the owls little claws with an Exacto knife, so that I could push the branch up underneath them. I wanted their little feet to look like they were holding on to the tree branch!The little leaves were fussy cut from a dp that I got from the Perfect Autumn(Carta Bella) 6X6 paper pad. 

The little owls look like they are enjoying a nice fall day!

And they're so cute!!!!!

We sure do hope you will join us HERE at the The Card Concept!

Remember , they're many different styles to choose to create.
You will see the different styles if you visit my Card Concept Teamies!
So much talent! You will truly be inspired!
