Hey hey we're the Whoots!


It seems like I have been waiting forever to ink up these Art Impressions Five Whoots.  When I saw the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week, they immediately popped into my mind, so here they are.
The background was created on white card stock with Distress inks.  I did a partial cut with the branch die and then cut the rest of the limb by hand.  I re die cut the branch in green and then glued those little leaves back on one by one.  Next I added some white ink and then Snow-Tex to the branches.
The Whoots were colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on foam dots after I used a spoon handle to round their little bodies out a bit for dimension.  Their eyes got a nice coating of Glossy Accents.


Copics Used:
owls E31, E55, Y21, E47, Y11, YR23
hats V93, V95, G21, G24, R20, R22, B41, B12, YR61, YR65

Scribble flowers


Happy Friday everyone!  It's Bellarific Friday so I have a card to share with you today.  Sorry for the rather dark photo.  The enlarged one below is more true to the real colors.  
Last week's challenge was this color inspiration.

I tried to pull out all of those flowers colors in pastel shades to do a bit of colored pencil on kraft work.  The image, Scribble Garden, was stamped and embossed in white.  I did the same for the sentiment on some vellum and also added a couple of embossed striped on either side of the sentiment.


It's pretty CAS but I really like the look of the white embossing on the kraft.
Next week's challenge is this sketch.

Ellie the elf


     Eeeeps!  Another cutie patootie sneaky peek of one of the upcoming releases form Stamping Bella.  Everyone just went ga ga over the Tiny Townies during the last release and now there are more.  This is TT Ellie the elf.  Isn't she adorable!  I colored her with Copics and then went over the gold with a Wink of Stella gold glitter pen.  I think I would have preferred the card without.  It kind of muted and muddled the Copic coloring.
