Card patterns - sketch 46

I love the sketch challenges from Card Patterns and this week they are up to #46. 

Here's my card creation:

I've used a new stamp of these two sweet little owls.  I stamped them onto watercolour paper in Stazon black and then watercoloured with ink pads and aqua painter.  I've been enjoying this alot of late!
I've layered cardstock and pattern paper as per the sketch provided.  Then I've made a tag using Soft Sky and stamped with the Sanded BG stamp from SU.  Once the image had been coloured, I cut out and then used dimensionals to pop it up.
I've added some white ribbon, some half pearls and a flower from Bizzy Becs (I can't stop using these - they are just gorgeous)
Here's a closer look at the little owls - you can see that I've added some crystal effects to the eyes.

Product used:
Stamps: Hoo Hoo There - Rachel Anne Miller from Stampavie
Cardstock: Not quite navy, Cameo Coral, White, Soft Sky, Marrakech pattern paper Basic Grey
Ink: Soft Sky, Stazon black
Others: white ribbon, flower, half pearls, Martha Stewart punch, dimensionals.
