Christmas Owl

 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).  Come on over an join us with you artwork :)

Challenge #20

My eldest daughter is in love with owls so what could be more perfect for her Christmas card than the Aurora Wings Christmas owl digi, isn't it adorable :)  The image was coloured with a base layer of Promarkers and then Polychromes pencils to add more depth and then mounted onto the background with foam tape.  The background was created with distress inks and then embossed with a Sheena Douglas embossing folder.  For the branch leaves I distress inked several shades of green on card and finally added Crafters Companion silver glitter spray.  The die for the leaves and pine cones was a freebie on a magazine.  Stickles were added to the tops of the pine cones and parts of the leaves to look like snow.  A simple silver bow with some silver beads along with a Christmas tree charm finished off this card.
