New Crafty Catz challenge: Winter Theme


A big warm welcome to my lovely new blog buddies! Thank you for joining me here! 

It's time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Catz Challenge Blog and it is our sweet Dianne's turn to select a theme. Dianne would like to see you create a winter themed project for her 'Winter Theme' challenge! 

This week's challenge is kindly sponsored by Sami Stamps and the lucky winner is promised to receive a $12 gift card to the shop at (that's equal to 3 images of choice). How cool is that?!  

My card: 

How adorable is this owl?! :) I wanted to create a light brown/light blue combo and I hope you like how it turned out! 
The owl was ligtly coloured in with my Caran D'ache pencils, I added some light brown fun flock to her and some Glossy Accents to her eyes. The wavey cardboard comes from my chocolate croissants box :) Not only that it created a fab stamp using my gesso on my last tat I created for my Speed Craft Challenge, but it made a really cool panel on this card! I sponged it a bit with the Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, just like the rest of the card. I love when I can give something a new life/purpose.
