Stamper's Dream Day 2

This card was made from the same set that I used yesterday, Owl Christmas from Hero Arts. Amazing that you can go from funky to traditional! Gotta love a stamp set that you can get some mileage out of!
On the kraft paper, I stamped the branch with green ink. I then cut around the branches for shape and colored in the berries with a red Copic.
The background was stamped using Watermank ink with the snowflake from the set and accented with a Spica pen.
The striped paper is from the same set of paper from Memory Box, called Christmas Brights.
The sentiment was stamped onto a covered piece of chipboard. The edges were highlighted with a brown pen and two gems.
Supplies:
Patterned paper-Christmas Brights, Memory Box
Stamps-Owl Christmas Clear, Hero Arts
Cardstock, Ribbon-Papertrey Ink
Ink-Dark Brown, Jardin Moss Palette, Watermark Versamark
Twine-May Arts
Buttons-Basic Grey
Gems-Hero Arts
Copic marker, Atyou Spica glitter pen
