Sweet ’n Sassy Blog Hop ~ Day 1 ~ Stop #2

 

Blog Hop Owl - Page 079

Hi Everyone! Yes, it is already time for the Sweet ‘n Sassy Blog Hop! The hop started this morning at the SNSS blog and I am the second stop of the day!

For my card, I chose one of my all time favorite SNSS images: Owl Occasions. It is actually one of the first stamp sets (other than SU) that I purchased a year ago when I started stamping! It remains one of my favorites because it is so versatile. It is pretty hard to resist these big innocent eyes!

I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge for this card. I colored Olivia Owl with my copics and if you look at her tummy, you will see that I tried to make it look “fluffy”. To achieve this effect, after you have colored the image, take your colorless blender pen and make tiny little strokes over the area. It will “lift” the color out of these parts. Be careful not to get too carried away or you will end up removing too much color.

  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Tempting Turquoise, My Mind’s Eye DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Ribbon from stash, Hero Arts adhesive pearls

Thanks for stopping by and your next stop for the hop is Sarah! Hop on over to see her sweet creation!
