Morning all, thanks for popping by 🙂

Sharing a birthday card today, made using Hobby Art stamps.

 

I started with an A5 sheet of watercolour card, I stamped the largest oak from the Ornate Owls stamp set, using a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. I used the masking technique to create the layered effect with the oak leaf.

Using the Lyra Art Pens I watercoloured the oak leaves, in various autumnal shades.

I stamped the owl, also from the Ornate Owls stamp set, using Versafine Onyx black. I then used a circle die and scrap card to create a mask for the owl before colouring the background in.

For the background I used the Pitt Big Brush Artist Pens, these pens are very juicy and colour beautifully but they can show lines when using certain papers or when colouring large areas. I choose this type of pen, it’s Indian Ink in the Pitt Pens, exactly because I want to see some of the lines, I wanted the background to have a wood/bark texture so when colouring with the Pitt Pens I could create that effect with very little effort, not sure if it’s that obvious in the photo but in real life you can see a grain effect with the yellow background. I also added a little more of the wood/bark effect by stamping with Hobby Art Texture stamps, using an orange Pitt Big Brush Pen to ink up the stamp.

I masked the owl and stamped the splatter effect, from the Texture stamp set. I used various different colours at the same time on the stamp using Pitt Big Brush Pens.

I used the Pitt Pens to colour the owl, I also stamped the head twice on watercolour card and used to decoupage the owl. The greeting was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.
