(L)owl Is In The Air

I was requested to make a wedding card for a couple who likes owls. I bought the Stampin' Up owl punch ages ago, but have hardly ever used it so I thought this was the perfect time to get it out and use it one last time before selling it on eBay. I wanted to dress up the cute little critters in their wedding finest, so I selected a bright red bow and pearl buttons for Mr Owl and a lace dress with rhinestones for Mrs Owl.

I created the background by watercolouring through ARTplorations Hearts All Over Mini stencil using Gansai Tambi pearlescent watercolour for a subtle sheen. I also splattered a bit of the pearlescent red to give the background a bit more interest. I die cut the sentiment from bright red and pearlescent grey card using CUTplorations Congrats Word die and finally die cut the whole card panel using CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies

I wish Mr and Mrs Owl all the best in their future life together!

These owls are definitely sweethearts! And I adore Mr. Owl's red bow tie. Sweet background for them, too. Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Ooo this is too cute to be true! I love the heart background and the owls are just so cute... Love the eyes! The colors of the sentiment look great too, fun idea to use two different card stocks. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational!
