Autumn Owl


Hello, there!  How about a happy fall card today?  Without a doubt it’s time to get hopping on those Christmas cards to avoid a last minute crunch, but fall is such a lovely season with all the warm colors and CUTE stamps.  I simply will not let it go by without fair tribute this year.  So I picked up a new Bugaboo Autumn Owl digi (along with a few others, but we’ll get to that later), printed it up nice and big…

…and had myself some fun coloring time with my Copics.

I framed it very simply with Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames cut in white.  Turned the two largest frames face down and applied foam mounting tape to the back, which was all that was needed to hold them together.  I colored the frame first in yellow (Y11), then went over that rather loosely with brown (E23) for a somewhat distressed look.  See how some of the yellow shows through?  Finished the frame by dotting around the edges with a darker brown (E29).

The Impression Obsession Medium Butterflies die set includes nine different butterflies, just the right size for card accents.  I cut this one in white and colored to coordinate with the image.  Gee, I didn’t even use any designer paper.  Will wonders never cease!

Don’t forget to check the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  Just follow the theme and use a die.  Easy stuff!  See you again soon!
