A Cute Fall Card! With A Touch Of Halloween

This cute card is 5 3/8X5/3/8" and was created using IO Leigh Hannan's new Tree Owls.  It was stamped on Neenah Solar White Super Smooth cardstock with Brilliance Galaxy Gold and painted with Twinkling H2O's Nutty Oak, Warm Pecan, Ginger Peach, and Daffodil.  The background was done using StazOn Saddle Brown ink with IO Cover-A-Card Maple Leaves on Classic Laid Solar White cardstock (It has a tooth to it that you can see in some of the leaves).  I used a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen for the dots to make the stars, dusted them with Deco Art Glamour Dust.  When dry I painted over the tops and around some with Twinks Daffodil. (Directly below the card above is the bottom of the envelope)

The bow was done using 3 metallic sprays and ivory seam binding.  It was then crumpled up in the corner of a ziplock bag and left over night.  The next day it was released and then a Bow-Easy was used for the double bow as shown.  You can find the instructions HERE.   I love the vintage effect.

All of the punched edges were done using SU Orange cardstock and Martha Stewart's Gothic Arches Corner Punch.  I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags for the greeting. Below is a close up.

Click on the image and you will see the detail in the owls.  Their little eyes were done with Twinks Daffodil and Copic Spica Black glitter pen.  Glossy Accents were applied over them, and I swear they almost look just like real 'Owl Eyes'.  LOL  The heart is from Fancifuls, Inc. online store.  I tied it on with some leftover gold cord.  The pearls are Mark Richards 3mm.  The words are IO Leigh Hannan's Owl Eyes.  Isn't that saying just too cute!

The inside of the card, shown below, was done with a stamped area of the Tree Owls and left over remnants from the Maple Leaves background.  The envelope is handmade from matching Solar White 80lb. text paper.  The flap of the card was done with the same Martha Stewart Gothic Arches corner punch.

I LOVE it!! Your coloring of all those owls is if fantastic; they pop right off the card. Great, great card.
I'm going to search for that stamp. I already have one of the owl stamps (I think its called moon light) and would love to add this one to my collection.
