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~

File Folder with Turtle Postcards

File Folder Set 1

My very creative and artistic friend, Missy Trantham, showed me this awesome video tutorial from Stampington last Friday.  It demonstrates how to make a stationery set holder out of a simple file folder.  It is short and easy!  Now, in the video, they have a gorgeous Cavallini file folder that has a beautiful print on it already.  For my attempt at this project, I just used a simple manilla folder and dressed it up inside and out.  I had a turtle stamp from Oxford Impressions I had been itching to use and this was the perfect project.  Since I didn’t have cards and envelopes to fit into it on hand, I just made post cards instead. I’ll buy a few postcard stamps and slip them into the empty section and it will be ready to go.  This is such a great gift idea!
