Celebrate the Season Christmas Owl!

Yesterday was such a busy day for me that I didn't get a chance to stamp! So I just couldn't wait to get some done today and get to play with the sketch challenges I normally do on the weekends. I received this owl from Spiral Whisper on Friday so of course I couldn't wait to use it!

My card today uses Beate's weekend sketch challenge ... I stamped the owl twice, once on white card and once on soft sky card ... I used liquid applique to give a snowy effect to the snowflakes and branch. I cut out the owl from the white card and attached it over the soft sky image using foam tape.

Recipe:
Stamps: Christmas Owl - Spiral Whisper; Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Paper: White; Black; Real Red & Soft Sky - SU; DP - My Mind's Eye
Other: Black Ink; White Liquid Applique; Snowflake Cuttlebug Die; Circle Punches; Scallop Border Punch; Foam Tape; Copics

How cute! Of all the owls in my collection, only two are stamps, so I guess I need to work on that. Because you share my love for owls...

Tag, you're it! Visit my blog for details. I hope you join in the fun.
