"Dream Together" for Rubber Dance.............

Good morning!!

Wow, I've been so very busy with my design team work recently so I thought it was about time that I supported my favourite stamp companies and their challenges while I'm in the lull between art calls.

I've created this card for the Rubber Dance colour challenge of cream, yellow and pink

I have used the Mama Owl and the Snazzy Squirrel stamp sets along with the Dream sentiment - I had to add "together" by hand as I wanted this to be suitable for an anniversary card, or engagement or even just a card of love - where two people become one.

I have reversed the tree from the Snazzy Squirrel set to give me the opposite branch to sit the second owl on and I have completely removed the squirrel from the branch and of course, replaced it with the owls!

Easier to show you!:-

 See, the squirrel went and the owls appeared!!!

When I had finished with the stamping, I masked off a large heart over the two owls and created my background using Distress Oxides - Antique Linen, Fossilised Amber and Candied Apple. I then removed the heart mask and just tinted the heart with a very small amount of the Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink.

Added some further stamping from the Mama Owl filler stamps and some black and white leaves and acorns - just because the squirrel isn't there doesn't mean that the owls can't sit in his tree!!!!

Added the sentiment and mat and layered in white and black.

I thought this was very sweet and the stamps are beautiful to use.

I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by today.
