Hootiful Christmas

A Christmas card featuring owls in their Christmas outfits:

This time I coloured all the images with Zig Clean Colour Brush pens – which I haven’t had out in absolutely ages – so I thought I’d give them a go.

The images from Clearly Besotted were stamped in Gina K amalgam ink – a brown colour this time – and then coloured with my Zigs – a couple of browns and a couple of greens.

I have no idea what water-colour card I used – but it started to ‘pill’ a little when I tried to blend, so I didn’t really do much blending, and just went very gentle – I must remember not to use this stash again!

Once coloured and die-cut with the matching dies, I added some glossy accents to the eyes, and left them to dry whilst putting together the rest of the card.

A slimline card using Pinkfresh Studio scalloped windows, and adding some white glitter card behind each window. When I added my owls for placement, I decided they looked a little lost, so I used Heffy Doodle ‘Hootiful’ stamp and die set for the tree stump and branch.

The sentiments are from two different sets – selective stamping with some masking of part of the whole sentiments, to create what I wanted.
