Owls and hearts

I needed to make a wedding card. This card is for CardPatterns #140 and for Hero Arts November challenge (bling theme). Here’s the sketch:

And here's my card:

I used the same embossing folder on the Core’dinations background cardstock and on the white cardstock. The owls were stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Inks (Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet), misted with water and Perfect Pearls and applied with a paint brush. The white areas were painted with Perfect Pearls and water to give a subtle shine (hard to photograph). I painted the embossed white cardstock with the same mixture. The cream cardstock was coloured with Distress Stain Antique Linen and misted with Perfect Pearls and water. The two chipboard hearts were painted white and coated with Distress Stickles. The sentiment is from a stamp that says ‘I love books’, but I only inked up the ‘love’ part.

A close up:

Thanks so much for visiting!! Have a wonderful weekend!
