Counting Owls

Hello  and Happy Monday everyone, before I share my post today; I want to let you know about an amazing event that is happening over the next 20 Days is

If you visit the Penny Black Blog  there will also be details on how to win 20 new stamps!

Today I thought I would share with you this cute transparent set Bugsy and Owly 30-110 on a personalised age card.

Look Whoo's 4

Other materials used include: Storm 01-001, Sticks and Stones 02-002, Fern Green 05-001 Mix and Match Card Stock, Charms 30-173 transparent set, Indian Wheel 40-202 Cling, Prisma Pencils, Versafine Black ink, Spanish Moss and Vintage Sepia ink, Memento Pear Tart Ink, and Martha Stewart  Double Scallop punch (only one layer of scallop is visible in the card).

Tips: to make the numbers stand out more I outlined with a fine liner pen and I also added some lines to the trunk using vintage sepia ink and a inkessentials nib.

Have a great week everyone, hugs Cathy

This is absolutely delightful - love the way you've used the numbers. The soft colours are super against the black & white of the base card & sentiment stamping.
