Hi everyone! It's Sandie here today with a card for a Teacher. It could also be a Thank You card for someone who is not a teacher. The stamps is What a Hoot from Woodware.
I stamped out my image onto Perfect Colouring Paper using Memento black ink.
On this stamp I applied my colours dark to light. I started with E27
Next I added E25
and finally, E23. I went back in with each of the colours until I was happy with it.
For the bottom part of the owl, I used E40's, again working from dark to light
I applied some E43 around the edges
and then E41. Once I had this part blended, I applied more E43 on the edges to give it some depth.
On the beak, I applied some E43
I applied some N5 to towards the bottom, and blended it out with with the E43 and the around the edges of the beak, I used E41
On the branch I used, E21, E33, E35
For the eyes I used Y13, Y15, Y17. Starting with the Y17 I did a thick line around the outside edge.
I used the Y15 to drag out the Y17 and left some white space around the pupils of the eye.
I blended the eyes with Y13 and brought the colour right into the middle.
Finally, for the leaves I used YG03, YG25, YG63
This is my little owl completed. Before adding him to the card I applied some white gel pen to the eyes and around the body.
Thanks for looking!
