The Other Owl

The last card I posted (here) used the same image as I've used on today's card: in fact I used the same coloured pencils too... just to show the difference between colouring on Kraft (as I did on the last card) and on white card.
The image is one of the Love Owls digis from Pink Gem Designs, too-whoo ca-yoot, lol... coloured with Prisamcolor pencils.  I've coloured the clouds and sky with Copics... I've never done it before so I found a tutorial on YouTube and this is the result!  
Crafts 4 Eternity has "Digital" as its theme this time so I'm entering there and Sundays with Chrissy's theme is Animals... so I'm in there too.  I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash, always good for a nice sketch :-)  The papers are from Starfish Lane (Hi Anna!)- bought with the gift voucher I got for our Anniversary... thanks darling :-)  Flutterby Wednesday has an Open challenge, so I'm entering thereThe polka dots on the white paper are metallic, it really is lovely IRL! Divas by Design has Spots and/or stripes as its theme so I'm in there, and Crafty Cardmakers has a recipe: one image (tick) two papers (tick) and three embellishments(Ribbon, pearls and beads... tick)  including at least one heart - tick, I'm in!!
Lisa is trying hard to get us to use our stash with her Waste Not Wednesdays challenge; The ribbon (which is a lovely double sided apricot/lemon number) has been in my stash so long I can't remember buying it... and that's still not as long as I've had the beads I made the stick pins up with!  The heads of the pins were yellow, I coloured them to match in with Copics.  The pearls are from my stash too, so I'm definitely in at WNW :-)  I punched the border on the mat with Martha Stewarts Doily Lace border punch.  
I've used more of the papers from the front on the inside of the card, positioning the stick pin so that it formed the body of a butterfly... it looks better IRL than it does in the picture which has sort of "grabbed' the pin.  The Simon Says ChallengePaper Crafting Journey and Allsorts Challenges a;ll have Anything Goes themes, so I'm entering there,Well that's it for today, Blogger is being very uncooperative and not letting me edit as I'd like, so apologies for the big spaces  everywhere!   I'll be back on Sunday with a card for the Here Come The Boys challenge, until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
