Thursday Color Challenge - Valentine Owls

Good Morning, Stampers!

There is a really rich color challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary. I love the crisp and cool look of these colors!

 I took these colors and worked them into little non-traditional color Valentine Owl magnets for my fridge!


These little cuties came together fairly simple. Cut a piece of Island Indigo to 2" x 11" and Perfect Plum to    1 1/2" x 11" and create the rosettes with the Sizzix Designer Rosette die.  I then added a few additional punches to complete them. The little heart banner they are holding comes from the Language of Love stamp set. When cutting, snip close but not all the way thru to create the heart banner.



Be sure to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to see all of the Designer's projects! 

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Language of Love
Ink: Smokey Slate
Paper: Perfect Plum, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Smokey Slate
Accessories: Sizzix Designer Rosette die, heart punch, 7/8" scallop circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, Owl punch, Island Indigo Baker's Twine, Pennant punch

Happy Stampin'!

This has definately inspired me to pull out my rosette die and use it. I plan to share these cute critters at the next admin meeting I'm hosting at work.
