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.
