Owen the Owl - I NEEDED Him!

Well, today I am posting a card I made that is for Samantha's Color Combo Challenge at SPCC (that is Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combos!), and I also used this week's sketch at Caardvark's for their Challenge. Here are the yummy colors Samantha chose this week:


Aren't these adorable? I don't have any Stamping Up materials, except for some stamp sets that I love, so I was appalled at the lack of colors that were close enough to suit me in my stash! I did the best I could. Guess I need to put in an order to Stamping Up, huh? See, I NEED to shop. lol


I was fortunate to have Owen the Owl to help me out though. In case you think I've lost my mind, Owen is this adorable owl stamp made by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms. I love all her stamps. Notice I keep saying I love certain stamps. I love SO MANY! I couldn't even begin to list them - well, you wouldn't want me to. Anyway, back to the subject at hand, I was able to color in Owen with colors that were pretty much on the money. Here is the sketch I used from Caardvarks. (Actually, the sketch originally came from Sheetload of Cards, FYI.)



So, here is my card. By the way, I colored in Owen with Copics and some colored pencils on the wings. I couldn't get the Mango color right for Owen's party hat (since I don't have many of those expensive Copics!), so I covered the pink Copics with Distress Stickles "Worn Lipstick". That gave some bling plus I was much happier with the color. Well, see what I mean:



See how cute Owen is? He looks great with Samantha's color choices! The sentiment is by Inkadinkado. The aqua paper is Basic Grey. The mango pp and all the flowers are Prima. The little flower brads are Making Memories and ribbon is SEI.

Be sure and have a look at SPCC. I have had a peek at some of the other cards for the challenge, and there are lots of talented artists out there! The site continues to grow, too! The list of entries keeps getting longer! Don't forget, Samantha is looking for a DT. Here is the link to the info about it. The call ends July 17th, so better hurry!
