Owl be Your Valentine

It's snowing again so it's a perfect day to hang around the house and play with some of my new stamps. This little cutie is Esme from the new DoodleFactory Valentines Remix collection available from Starving Artistamps. In fact, all of the stamps I used on this one are from Starving Artistamps.
For the layout, I used sketch #SC211 from Splitcoast Stampers. My background panels are the Ornate Tooled Leather background stamped with Ranger Distress Fired Brick ink. I colored the negative spaces with a pink Copic marker. Esme is also stamped with the Fired Brick ink and colored with Copics markers. The branch and the leaves aren't a stamp at all, but my own amazing artwork, LOL!
Hope you're enjoying your Sunday afternoon as much as I am!

  5. I really love this card, you made the perfect balance the background can really get crazy busy but you kept it in check and it worked so well! You are inspiring me to break out my Tooled background!

  6. Love the card, Dee. The pink paisley-type background is so pretty. You have such a knack for knowing just what to put together to produce a real winner.


It's so nice to hear from you...thanks for taking the time to comment!
