My husband's birthday is about 3 weeks away and this home décor art was made with him in mind. Need to buy a frame before I present this to him. And he will be shocked that this is early! #406 Birds challenge for MTTC blog=
My Time To Craft blog design team project:
Check out all the details for how to participate and see what the other members of the DT crew have made. A delightful variety of projects for this theme!
Some details on how this project was made:
a. the owl image is a coloring page "tattoo" from Bendon Publishing of Ashland, Ohio; "Adult Coloring--Tattoos--Relax and Rewind" with tear and share pages
b. I laid this image on my printer's scanner surface and then put kraft cardstock into the paper tray and copied the image onto the kraft CS.
c. Using colored pencils (some combo of hues were used to vary my choices) for the majority of color-fill on the owl. The beak had been colored yellow-orange with gold metallic pen over that to contrast with the feathery fluff on each side of his beak.
d. A few chipboard stickers were scattered for accenting and the "with love" stamped in the corner.
e. With the coloring page outlined, I decided to outline all the stickers and stamped sentiment.
f. Striped paper background is from The Paper Studio by Hobby Lobby
g. The stickers and striped patterned paper were put into my compiled kit for CKC blog's September 2019 challenge.
Other groups or blogs where this owl will be shared:

This is their 2nd post of the month. So scroll to find the previous 1st post and then the subsequent posts on how to use your copy cat kit throughout the month. Still a bit over a week to participate and use up some of your stockpile. When I selected my papers and a few embellishments last weekend, my focus from the inspiration kit was for the color hues.
