Christmas Owl

Julie Warner -

Weekly-FavoriteToday’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC453), artichoke, cherry & baked brown sugar, are such great colors for Christmas that I made another card. Mary (owner of Serendipity Stamps), asked if anyone could think of a way to make this super owl die look Christmasy. This is what I came up with using the hat and scarf from the Snowman w/ Birds image.  Julie Warner -

After die cutting the owl, I attached him to a piece of dk red. Originally I had die cut a smaller labels 4, but I changed my mind and put the die cut label back into the piece and used it as one. I had a scrap of an artichoke piece so I used it on the right side. The snowy scene was stamped onto the kraft (as close as I have to the baked brown sugar) and I added snow on the trees w/ a white gel pen. The snow on the ground was done w/ a white prismacolor pencil. The falling snow was done by seriously thinning white acrylic paint (approx. 6 to 1 water/paint) in a fine mister and spritzing. I wanted something else red, so I drew a tiny cardinal in the tree. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25. These are the Copics I used to color the hat & scarf.

  1. Oh this is so cute! I love his gorgeous little scarf and hat!

  2. Of course you would come up with an answer to the question of can you make the owl look Chrismassy. You can do anything. This is one adorable card, and I really like the owl.
