Coloring the cutest little owls!
30 days of coloring challenge to make this card. The "Five Whoots" stamp is by Art Impressions. I tackled it with Copic markers with a touch of Gelly roll white pen on the eyes. On the following day I stamped the background using a Lawn Fawn stamp set Gingham Backdrops with persimmon Versa Magic chalk ink. I had no reason for chalk ink, just trying to match a color from my ink supplies. I had tried to use my same Copic markers and spritz colorless blender before stamping, but I just couldn't make it work. And I die cut the slider window which is also from Art Impressions. I cut the Owls into a cute little bookmark. Because Copic bleeds through to the back of your paper I doubled up the cardstock on the bookmark. Even double thickness, it slid just fine. Behind the bookmark I stamped the candles and sentiment both by Penny Black. When I try a similar card in the future, I'll try to remember to stamp something behind where the slider window will be in advance!
