Dare to be different


Hope you all had a fab Valentines Day !!! I spend mine with my family and had a great time.


I fell in love with these "Branching Out Owlies", and I LOVE this particular "Collage Press" patterned paper, and I thought it would be perfect for this image. Blue, black and cream are some of my favourite colours, and I don't use them often enough. I paper pieced the upside down owl, and I coloured the rest of the owls with black Lyra pencils and mineral spirits. The branch is glittered to make it pop.


I am so excited that Bellarific Fridays are back !!!!! Check it out at http://www.stampingbella.com/. Click on Bloggabella to see the first colour challenge. All you have to do is scan a picture of your card to Emily by Thursday 5 p.m. EST and your card will be shown on her blog, AND, you have a chance to win a gift certificate. How cool is that? I gave her my card today and I hope you guys will go and check it out.

Hugs

Nicky
