Owl holiday card...

Bailee just loves owls! I knew when I saw this set by Hero Arts at Archiver's...we had to have them. They are just too darn cute!

I embossed the owls, cut them out, colored them with prismacolor pencils, and attached them with dimensionals. I used SU! watercolor paper for the background. I inked up my brayer with baja breeze and covered the entire piece. Next I inked just the edge of the brayer with pacific point and went over the top and bottom for depth. I took a damp sponge and blended the colors together. Lastly, I stamped little snowflakes in white craft ink.

Stamps: Hero Arts Owl Christmas from Archiver's
Paper: Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, baja breeze, SU! watercolor paper
Ink: Chocolate chip craft ink, baja breeze, pacific point, SU! white craft ink.
Accessories: clear embossing powder, stickles, scallop edge punch, American craft ribbon, prisma pencils, brayer.



This is absolutely adorable! LOVE the layout and how the patterned paper looks with scalloped edges, the owls are wonderfully coloured :D
