I had a lot of fun putting this card together. I've been practicing with my Distress Inks a lot lately, and trying to improve my blending. I thought I'd try to create a starry night sky. I blended a few shades of purples together, starting with the lightest shade at the bottom and working my way up, ending with the darkest shade at the top. Then, on top of the night sky, I stenciled in some dark stars with Heidi Swapp's Confetti Stencil.
Then, I cut a curved piece of cardstock for the grassy hill, and used some darker greens to ink that up as well. I stamped the little owls in black on top of the grass.
With my Sizzix I cut out some little white stars and adhered them up in the sky as well, finishing them off with some stickles. I used my white gel pen to add some dots in the sky, as well as coloring in the owls' eyes just to make them pop. Finally, I added some Glossy Accents to the owls' eyes, and popped the sentiment up with some foam squares.
I love how all the different elements came together to make a totally different style of card than I'm used to making!!
