3 challenges in one card - Introducing Oli Owl

A really good day today, well kind of, the kids are still full of naughtyness must be about to be very ill that is usually the reason. I however managed to find time to hit the sketchbook and perfect my third digital doodle. I have done two others but they are part of some DT work so I will not be able to share as yet. I am doing this for fun but if there is any interest who knows where it could go.

This little owl is called Oli (short for Oliver or Olivia) I have used it on this card for three challenges.

Firstly I resized Oli and printed off twice as I wanted to add dimension to the image. I coloured in Oli with promarkers and sakura stardust pen. I layered the feathers and the wings twice. I added some gems to the swirls on Oli.

I created a flower using some stamps and inks and promarker pen. I then layered them to make a flower to which I added my embellishments of a bow, button and roses. I used some MME freebie paper and some ribbon from the stash. I used a border punch and a flourish stamp to create the panel upon which Oli and the flower are sitting. I stamped the letters and cut them out as tiles to add a sweet sentiment.

Please let me know what you think of Oli x
