Owl Come For The Cake

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hello Portal Peeps.  Gail here today with a pile of owls for the Winged Things Challenge.  We want to see winged things as the focus of your stamped project.  Don't forget February is a short month so grab your birds, planes, angels, dragons, or any other winged thing that takes your fancy and join the fun.
I used Lost Coast Designs Owls Set and Party Words.
I started by stamping the owls on scraps of patterned paper.  The large owl on a blue scrap, the medium owl on a pale beige scrap and the small owl on a pink dotty scrap.  Stamped him twice cos the first one ended up with a orange dot on his face!!
There is a lot of detail on these owls, so after fussy cutting and adding some colour with Promarkers I decided the small owl was too dark.  I restamped him on the pale beige I used for the medium one and found a scrap of cream with pink dots for the medium one.  This was also my original idea for the way I would add them to the card but that changed too.
I used four of the Party Words sentiments and made a word block.  I stamped it on my DL card made from Authentique patterned paper using Bluebird archival ink.  Then I edged the card with carnation archival.

I die cut a branch and added a little Promarker colour and then arranged it and the owls on the stamped card base.  

The Winged Things Challenge is open until the end of the month so grab your stamps and join the fun for a chance to win Lost Coast Design dollars!!!
