Little Wizard Owl

Hello and Happy Monday!

It's time for day 6 of Whimsy Stamps August Rubber and Die Release! I hope you were able to join us the last 5 days of mini blog hops for some fun prizes on each day. If not, you still have  couple more days to hop along. Remember you have 24 hours to enter into today's drawing, so until tomorrow 12noon EST. You can find the complete list of stops on the Whimsy Inspirations blog. All winners will then be announced on Wednesday.

I am part of today's blog hop and decided to use the cute Little Wizard Owl from Whimsy's Meljen's Designs.



I colored the image using my Faber castell pencils, the hat however was done using copic markers. I really wish I was more patient with my markers, I have so many but I always end up frustrated whenever I use them, so I always end up reaching for my pencils (which I do love). I do however
 like how my hat turned out. Not so happy with the owl itself, I tried to make it appear like feathers, but I am not so sure I achieved that.

I had these googly eyes laying around and thought they would look cute added to the owl.  I created the kraft background paper by stamping one of the flourishes from Whimsy's Lavish Flourishes stamp set using black ink. The sentiment is from an old SU set, it's the same sentiment I cut the Happy Halloween out that I used on my card on Friday.  I added some ribbon and twine, stamped "Boo" (which I got from the Michael's dollar section a couple of years ago), and punched it out. Then tucked it under the ribbon like a tag.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
 Ok, that should be it from me, be sure to go check out the rest of the Designer's creation for today. You can find the complete list
 HERE.

Thanks so much for visting!
Have a great day!

  13. Ellie, your googlie eyes are perfect! Wish I had some for my owl today too! I understand what you're saying when it comes to Copic coloring, it can take extra time but I don't do as well with my pencils! Great job on the whole card, love the flourish paper too!
