Owl-Thanks


There is just something about this owl from Pamela's Yoo HOOO! set that draws me in ...I don't really know what it is. I always think of Harry Potter and Hedwig. Anyway...I just added a bit of gray shading with Copic C1 to the owl and then colored in around the eyes. I did dab one of the yellow/orange Copics to the beak and talons but I forgot to write what # it was, sorry. The tree branch was done using water color crayons. I then used several shades of the light blue and grays to make the sky around the owl. Finally finished it off with some Palette Burnt Umber edging and mounted it to the brown textured paper that I had already applied the ribbon, sentiment and brads to. The word Thanks is actually from the Fruit Cup set and said Thanks bunches but I cut it apart so I could use the Thanks on more thing :) Just bend the rubber snip close and wallah 2 words now and both stamp just fine!
