I actually printed Owliver out on kraft colored cardstock to start. I love the way that Copic markers look on kraft. I even have a separate color chart so I can know what the color will look like once it has dried. It comes in so handy!
There poor Owliver sat. There was just too much open space. I picked up some blue copics and started making a sky. Then I worked from the bottom up with the greens to create grass and ground. I am always scared to color the entire card front but I am very please with how it turned out!
I thought it looked like an evening sky so I used my Sakura Stardust gelly roll pen to add a few dots and stars. I searched through my dies to find just the right one and the Crazy Stitched Frame dies called to me.
Just one more thing needed...a sentiment. I think Owliver looks like he might be waving hello and I searched through until I found one in my CDD collection. This lovely hello is from Say it big. I embossed it using Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
