KS Inspiration - Adriannas Owl

My son is mad on owls..
So my challenge was t take this girly owl and make it suitable for either sex...
and being near Christmas of course it had to be a Christmas card !

So here is my Karleigh Sue Adriana Owl - Christmas style

I also wanted to keep it CAS..

I cut her out using a nestie die. 

Edged this cut out with a red felt pen
I coloured her using the following polychromo pencils
 Bow - lyra light carmine, moss green
 Branch - lyra burnt sienna, Faber Castel caput mortuum

 Owl - Lyra raw umber, burnt ochre, van dyke brown, gold ochre

The background paper is from my stash.

I had to buy a new Christmas greeting die this year - so made good use of it on red card to match the base card.

I hope this inspires you to join Karleigh Sue challenge and share your projects with us all.

kind regards
