New Kim Hughes Release

I'm SO excited about this latest Kim Hughes release at Cornish Heritage Farms. The designs are fantastic!
The two new sets are:
Here's a card I created using U R A Hoot.

The branch for the little owls is in the set... and has the Paisley Backgrounder pattern on it (so clever!!!). I added a free form tree with the same pattern to give our owls a bit more to cling to. I used the same Paisley backgrounder for the sky. Both were originally stamped in color on white paper. It was just a little too stark for me, so I sponged ink of the same color over to soften the design.

I also used a Sakura Black Glaze pen for their eyes. I'd stamped the owls in black and colored with Copics. What I find is that copics are very vibrant, and even my best stamping leaves a bit of white showing through the black ink. To give the same vibrant look, I filled in with the black glaze... and they have a bit of shine as a side benefit.

Be sure to stop by the CHF gallery for all the other designs for these two sets. I'll share another project with you soon too.
