Blue Owl Postcards

I made these postcards using the owl stamp I carved and my Derwent Inktense blocks.

We didn’t have much of a winter here in central Texas, so the only snow I’ll see  is the sn0w in my art.

I stamped the owls in blue, then added more color with the blocks, and then finally added some more details with my .03 black pen.

A phrase crafted from book text…

Using a water pen to blend the Inktense colors in the background…

Red cheeks and red berries added with the Inktense blocks…

Lots of sparkly glitter in the forest…


I used some white ‘Fun Flock”  to add snow to the branch…

Thanks for visiting my blog and looking at my art projects!

Have a great week~

    You are always so clever, love the carving of your Owl–isn’t there a job as a card designer for big bucks waiting for you?

  8. You carved that stamp?! That’s SO fabulous! Gave me an idea – what if you carved a couple of amazing, one-of-a-kind stamps like this and put them in your shop?? I know I would love something so cool like that and each one would be so special and original. Just a thought :)))
    AND I love what you did with it – and those red cheeks are the best!! Love how you choose not to blend it in and leave the color so bold.
    AND thank you for your comment. Okay, you made the decision for me – I could not decide wether to sell or send in – I will now with your nudge 🙂
    Thank youuuuuu, xoxoxo
