Isn't she sweet all dressed up in her owl costume? I really enjoyed coloring her up....I did it a little differently.

Using Neenah cardstock (because it is a little softer) I stamped and clear embossed the image. I filled up my water pen with copic blending solution and then dripped out some copic refill colors on a plastic palette. I then painted the image, even the skin, with the water pen. I really should do a video to show you exactly how.....

I cut out the image with one of my circle STAX Die-namics matted with the Large Dizzy Doily and added a little trim accents with the Double Dot Border Die-namics. Paired up with some new "Attic Treasures" papers from Melissa Frances.

Here is a close up on the left to show the watercolor look with copic markers. Love how there are so many colors you can see in the feathers!
