Another Busy Card

Yikes, I've gone embellishment crazy again. I don't know what happened to my "sparse is more" philosophy, but it seems to be gone for the moment. I made this card using the colors from today's challenge at SCS and the sketch from Poetic Artisty's Mojo Monday.

The stamp set is Owl Always Love You from Gina K designs. I stamped the image twice and colored them with water color pencils and an aqua pen. I cut out the owl and foliage from one of the images and layered them using pop dots. I also heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder.

The papers are Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Almost Amethyst, Basic Black and Whisper White (all Stampin' Up). The inks are So Saffron, Lovely Lilac, and Certainly Celery from Stampin' Up and Black Stazon.

The two flowers are from my precious stash that I received from Joanne. She has agreat tutorial on how to make them yourself, using nestabilities, but you could always use your scallop punch if you don't have scallop circle nesties.

Have a great day!

Busy or not, looks good. Love the color combination. When you are trying to follow a sketch, it is hard to get things the way we want them to work.

May be you need to put some away :-)
