Mother’s Day with MFT Owls

Mother's Day Owls - My Favorite Things

It’s Mother’s Day today here in the UK and this card is for my own mother. She loves owls so this set from My Favorite Things was perfect for her. Coloured with my Zig brush markers with a few additional stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.

Mother's Day Owls - My Favorite Things

I started out by stamping two of the owls from the MFT I’m Owl Yours set in MFT Black Hybrid Ink onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock. I then coloured these in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers in shades of brown, green and purple with a little orange for their beaks. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. I die cut a stitched circle die from MFT from some white cardstock and scribbled on some blue and green ink, blending out with my water brush to create a background. I stamped the sentiment in black ink from the Lawn Fawn Mum + Me set and adhered the owls to the background with foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Using an A2 Neenah Desert Storm side folding card base, I used the Lawn Fawn Woodgrain Backdrops stamp set to add a subtle background with some Versamark ink. I adhered the panel to the card with some double sided tape and added a scattering of sequins from the Neat & Tangled Festive Fall mix.

Of course, I had to finish the inside of the card with one more owl from the set!
