Today’s challenge has such great colors for Christmas that I made another card. After die cutting the owl, I attached him to a piece of dk red. 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) & 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.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups including the Copics used, are on my blog: The Write Stuff

What a wonderful creation, Julie. The owl is just too cute and I absolutely love the winter scene you created on the kraft. That penciled snowdrift is amazing and the blizzard is so real looking. (And I know that - living in S FL.) A delightful card all the way round.

Julie, I just LOVE your snowy scene on the left side!! The gel pen work is awesome; your snow looks real! I love the idea of stamping a snowy scene on Kraft cardstock - must try this. Thanks for sharing!
