Hoot & Hootie Christmas


I seem to have a thing about doing owls in odd colours... for some reason I hardly ever reach for brown when I have owls to colour!  This cute pair are Hoot & Hootie from Digistamp Boutique, one of the fab new offer images for this month.

I've coloured them with promarkers and then added a bit of 'glow' using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador, and used glossy accents on their eyes.  The papers are Dovecraft, with cardstock from my stash, sentiment and card candy from Craftwork Cards.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Apologies for being a bit behind in visiting all your blogs at the moment, I've been a bit busy but hopefully I'll manage to visit some of you tonight - you're all so productive though, it's hard to keep up!

Very cute, love the colours :)
Re: circles - yes, I was wondering how you line up the dies when cutting a scalloped card blank. Whenever I try it, when I stand the card up, it looks wonky :( Taking pics sounds like a gr8 idea x
