Variation Week - Hooty So In Love, Jane's view

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps called Hooty So In Love by Concetta Kilmer.  This image is being used by the whole team for our Variation Week creations.

This image just shouted Valentine to me :) :) :) now that is a celebration I love :)  I just could not resist having a blue and pink owl.

The image was coloured with Spectrum Noir Blendable Crayons.
 Onto making the card.  After having tried several different papers and none giving me the effect I wanted I ended up settling to go with mulberry paper with its beautiful texture.  The papers were only attached in the centre as I wanted the edges to flappy.
 Next I embossed the card blank with the mulberry papers attached.
 To finish off the card I printed my sentiment <g> and mounted it on the same mulberry paper combination.  Spellbinder Grand ovals and Scalloped Ovals were used to mount the image.   Now I know it was not straight, that is deliberate - no relationship is so perfect, it has it's off centre moments but working through them is the 'key' to having strong foundations and 'padlocking' the union <g>. Talking about keys and padlock, the die used for these was Cottage Cuts Lock and Key.
