it’s a hOWLiday card
The challenge this week at the Hero Arts blog is to use glitter. Ok, I’ll admit it… I don’t use glitter. It is just way to messy for me. I get it all over me, my desk and sometimes my dogs. They don’t like it either.
But, I do love glitter when it is incorporated in other medias… such as a glittery embossing powder and glitter glue. Not so messy that way.
I love this Urban Prairie paper pad by Basic Grey. It is not a holiday theme paper pack but I love the non-traditional colors for a holiday card. I guess that might be my unofficial theme this year for holiday cards… no Christmas red and green for me. The pop of color is so unexpected. I used some white embossing powder with a glitter in it for the branch. The berries are colored in with a Copic marker and then covered with some Christmas Red Stickles. I also used some Stampendous Chocolate Brown embossing powder for the owl.
