Owl Be Yours Forever

I've had the "U R A Hoot" stamp set from The Kim Hughes Collection (Cornish Heritage Farms) for about 2-3 weeks and finally cut them out this weekend. While I was cutting, the wheels started turning and I wanted to come up with different outfits for the owl. Well, I couldn't get this out of my head! I finally got some time to implement it. I drew in the tuxedo, bow tie, and boutonnière.
I'm still in the stampin' dark ages and don't have any Copics, so I must use what I have: stamp pads and an aquapainter. Maybe someday I'll get some Copics...maybe. I had trouble with photographing this where you could see the details, so here's a close-up of the owls on the embossed black paper.

Stamps: CHF U R A Hoot, Rhonna Farrer Scroll clear stamp
Ink: Staz-on Jet Black, SU! Black, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Only Orange, Silver
Paper: SU! Whisper White, Frances Meyer, Inc. Bulk paper (dry-embossed black paper) - I've had this for years...seriously, Watercolor paper (for owls)
Accessories: Jolee's by You flowers and stems, tulle (for the veil), Jolee's bow, A Muse creative candy, and Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter (that was my mom's many moons ago {I remember using this for making ear rings in the 80's!})

Happy stamping!
