Owls for Valentine

Today I have some more owls for you.
 The image is by Create with TLC and
so is the sentiment.
But the background is made with 
the cloisonné hearts of Michael Strong.
I scanned the background  (you can do the right click trick
and save it to your computer to use) and tell you how
I made it: first I stamped the hearts with versamark
and sprinkled clear embossing powder on it and then 
heat embossed them all.

With distress stains the background is colored and 
the embossingpowder works as a resist.
A few deops of water are sprinkled on top and
heated with the heat gun. Ready for use.

The owl picture is colored with copic markers and
the heart is punched out of a piece of glitter foam.
The second card is made with a subway text by 
Create with Tlc. It is printed on craft paper
and run through the cuttlebug with a small
hearts embossing folder. On the borders and the hearts
vintage distress inkt is sponged.

The owl picture for this card is colored in pencil.
On the heart is a little gemstone glued.

Have a creative day!
