Mr. Owl Wishes You a Merry Christmas


My card is for the Merry Monday challenge #125-Transportation. You are to make a Christmas card and use some type of vehicle or transportation on your card.

My image is a digital stamp from Louby Loo/Hooty Occupations set). It is colored with Copics and I added some Glossy Accents on the windshield, headlights, and tire wheels. Of course, it isn't showing. :-)

I made my clouds with a Judikins-Kite stencil called Puffy clouds. I inked the clouds with Memento Tangelo, Sweet Plum, and Aegean VersaMagic chalk ink.

I colored the car, scarf, and owl with Copics. The highway is a piece of Bazzill cardstock which I drew lines on with a Sharpie. Then, I also cut out a snow bank and edged with blue ink.

The die cut trees are from Frantic Stamper, Inc./Tall Pine Trees.

My sentiment is from Hero Arts/clear stamp set CL722.

The ribbon is Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler. I added a punched star and large gemstone in green. The twine is from The Twinery/Carribean.

Love the card. Owls should be used more for other than Halloween cards. Not a Halloween fan. Excellent card. - Jim
