Heavy sigh. This last Valentine before THE day is for a GINGERWOOD challenge in which we were sent 3 ingredients that must be included on the card. The basic tree image, the ribbon and the sticker that reads "Love" were in my envelope. I added hearts instead of leaves, an owl, a feather and a fence. (STOP Ginny, stop!) There is Basic Grey DP as the first layer on the base white card and Distress Ink edging the focal panel to repeat the blue in the owl and the ribbon. Finally the fence, ribbon and vinyl word sticker were added. (OMGosh, over the top.)
The owl and feather were colored with Copics and have been fancy cut, sculpted and mounted with foam tape to provide dimension. Believe it or not, in the real world the owl colors of the pinks, blue and orange in his beak and feet match up pretty closely to the ribbon. I don't understand how that happens??? All in all, I put WAY too much stuff in this... wish I could do it all over again... but my ingredients are gone now! Throw it to the winds and let the votes fall where they may.
