Freakin' Adorable

I know I've been a bit out of the loop lately, but I'm still here. Everything is fine... I just haven't been stamping much. This project was sitting on my desk for a very long time, and I just finished it yesterday. I love these cutie Unity owls, and I originally stamped and colored them. They looked horrible, so I ended up stamping them on some Creamy Caramel card stock and trimming them out (much better). I stamped them one final time, and trimmed out the eyes and beaks. They were adhered to the little owls, and colored with Copic markers. The owls are "standing" on some Sand Ultra Fine Flower Soft, and the patterned paper is Nutmeg (Cosmo Cricket). Twill is from PaperTrey Ink, and the brad is from SU.

Stamps: Freakin' Adorable (Unity Stamps)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Vintage Cream (PTI), Nutmeg (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Copic Markers
Accessories: Labels 7 (Spellbinders), Sand Ultra Fine Flower Soft, Dark Chocolate Twill (PTI), brad (SU), Scalloped Edge punch (SU), Tombo Mono Multi Glue, Flower Soft Glue

Have any of you been keeping up with Molly (the most famous barn owl) and her brood? I have been addicted to watching ever since Kristina mentioned it at her blog a while back. The Royal family is so generous to devote their time, and share these incredible creatures with us all 24/7 !! I have pre-ordered my Eric Blehm eBook, signed up for John Atkinson's eComic Strip, and have a Molly Mug on the way to me. Addicted? Why yes, I am.
