christmas owl

   I hope you are ready for a fresh challenge at Crafting From the Heart. As always our theme is anything goes. Our sponsors this week are 


    My card uses a digi image from Sami Stamps called Hollie Owl. I coloured it using Promarkers and then dusted the background with distress inks using greens for the upper left hand triangle and reds for the other. The background papers are from the Berry Merry Christmas papers by Jennifer Ellory and I reversed the colour scheme. After attaching the image to the card I outlined two edges in red peel off and two in green peel off. The sentiment was also a mixture of red and green peel offs.
