It's the 25th..... that must mean it's Christmas! What do you mean it's only July?! Well over at the That's Crafty Challenge the theme is "The 'C' Word......anything to do with Christmas" So here's a little chap that definitely seems to be ready for Christmas, he's even got the decorations up!
I stamped this Santa Owl from Stampendous onto a small square of card and then blended a little Distress Ink around him in shades of green.  Then using a Holly stamp from the Sleigh Bells plate by Oxford Impressions I added a bit of foliage around the edge to frame him.  Then using the little bulb stamp from the Christmas Wish stamp set, also by Oxford Impressions, I gave him some fairy lights to decorate his little corner......each time I stamped the bulb I inked the bulb part with a different colour of distress ink and the top part with black memento. I liked the way you could see through the bulbs once stamped, made them look more glass like. Then I coloured our festive feathered friend with Distress Inks by putting the colour onto my craft mat and picking up the colour with a damp brush like watercolour.

Make sure you pop over and join in the challenge, there's a chance to win £20!

See you again soon
