Chilly Owl

The image for today’s card is Chilly Owl from Limited Runs and is the image for their progressive challenge on Facebook. If you played along last time then you get the image for free, if not then it is available at the Limited Runs Stamps store, the link is below.


Materials used: 
Limited Runs Stamps – Chilly Owl
brown card
X-Press It! card
pearlised white paper
Britannia leaf die
leafy branch die
gold peel off sentiment
small flower buttons
Copic pens:
feathers – W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
eyes / legs – Y13, Y15, Y17, E15
beak – E31, E33, E35, E39
hat – R29, R39, R59, R89
log – E41, E43, E44, E47
grass – G21, G24, G94, G29, G99
sky – B000, B00, B91, B93

The log I drew in myself following instructions from one of my Kit and Clowder classes (well worth the money and so good if you want to improve your colouring skills.)

The leaves are die cut and coloured with Copics. The pearlised paper does not let the Copic ink blend very well so I have tried to use different greens in patches to show definition.

The little buttons and the greeting sticker have been in my stash for a few years now, just waiting for their turn to shine.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
