Owl's It Going????

Hello everyone! I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. I spent my Saturday at Copic Certification!!! I had signed up months ago for this class and it finally came.  So now I can proudly say I am a Copic Certified Designer!  I got to try out some of their new     
 X-press It Blending Card Stock and I am in heaven. It is like magic paper to color on!!! Now I just have to find a good price on it and order it!  That and of course now I want to airbrush!!!! Love the toys!!!!! 

Today I am wondering Owl's It Going with you?  This little guy/girl is ©Elaine Cox's Little Owl Witch and can be found at Sweet Pea Stamps.  It can be bought as a single stamp or with 3 other darlings.

I colored my little witch with copics but accidentally stamped her on the wrong side of my card stock so it was the glossy side. I thought I would give it a shot and see what happens (note to self) DO NOT DO IT AGAIN!!!! I found I had a hard time with blending and as you can see in the pictures their are high and low spots in the coloring!!!! This creates a sheen and almost a sticky feel to the image. Live and learn I say!  I put Glossy Accents on the moon behind and added some googley eyes for whimsy!!!! I used black, white and grey chalks for my background and opal liquid pearls for the stars.  Vintage Photo distress ink was used to age the edges of all my papers.  The sentiment was generated on my computer. A friend of mine had just laced a card of hers with string so I CASED that and did the same with some fibers I had forever and strung a few beads on them. Even with the shiny card stock I think it turned out pretty cute, what do you think?
