I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Phrases set using black memento ink, and then over the top I added the deer from the Happy Camper set. Next I stamped the twig, with marshmallows which is also from the Happy camper set and finally, in the top right corner I added part of a sentiment from a Clearly besotted stamp set- You're a hoot!
Then came the tricky bit of stamping and cutting out post-it note masks for the deer and twigs. But once they were covered up I could start applying the Hero Arts Cornflower ink. I added the ink little, bt little using a piece of make-up sponge-I wanted a little bit of shading around the twig and the deer, hopefully this hose up in the photo.
Next I stamped the owl from the Chubby Chums stamp set and several copies of the leaf from the Cutasaurus set. I removed the masks from my background and used Promarkers to colour in the owl, leaves, branches and deer- I also added a little shading with grey around the outside of the background images to ground them a little.
I used Pinflair glue gel to stick my owl and leaves on to my "branch" taking care to cover up the unwanted marshmallows. I also stamped a heart/footprint shape from the Cuteasaurus set onto the background a couple of times using the Cornflower Hero Arts ink again. I added a die-cut and re inked heart, made from the Hearts die, to the start of the word love. Finally, I added glossy accents over the word love and a touch of shimmer over the hearts, "you dearly" and under the "owl always" using my brand new Wink of stella brush (LOVE it).
