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.
