I just had to buy the Warm & Feathered Hugs stamp set and dies from My Favorite Things. The images are simply adorable. This set has 3 owls that are dressed for winter, so I thought I’d better make some cards before the winter season is over.
I started by stamping the darling owl images onto Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink. My Zig brush markers hadn’t been used in a while, so I pulled those out to color the owls. After they dried, I die cut the owls using the matching dies.
The background was created by masking off the bottom left corner for my snow hill and ink blending the rest using Broken China, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides. Using a black fine tip marker, I drew the hill edge and, once again, pulled out my Zig markers to give the snow a bit of definition with the light blue marker. I made a slight shadow for the owl/sled using some cool gray Copic markers. I heat embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts Made with Love stamp set. Before placing the owl on the card front with foam tape, I added some falling snow using a white gel pen. I die cut the card front with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die and attached it to a Neenah Solar White 110# A2 card base.
Glad you stopped by!
