A Couple of Night Owls - Bertie & Bob

Even though I am not a "bird" person when it comes to craft and stamping, I have to say I just love these owls!  A few weeks ago I got to have a play day with a group of very talented ladies and Kez showed us how to make these gorgeous owls.  Check out her gorgeous little couple.  The talented Lynn Pratt created the template and you can purchase a copy from her by visiting her blog site and clicking on templates.

I had a little play on Monday night and these were my take on the little cuties.  I originally set out to do a Bride and Groom set but left it a little late and wasn't up to working out a wedding dress so I settled for a couple "Out On The Town".  I really felt that Bertie needed eyelashes and she certainly got some.  My original version had shorter eyelashes and no glitter and I just felt that something was missing.  This is the updated version and if you can't see in the photo, I sprayed the eyelashes with Champagne Shimmer Paint and they look very GLAM!!!!!

I have used Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Basic Black & Crumb Cake card stock.  The papers are from the Love Letter DSP set.  There were quite a few punches used and I made my eyes larger to create a "doey eyed" look.

Bob's Fob Watch was created using the Clock for Sense of Time and Bertie is blinged up with some clear rhinestones.

I am looking forward to creating more characters using this awesome template and I'd like to thank Lynn and Kez for the inspiration.
