Aren’t these the cutest owls? They are from Unity combined with a saying from Ippity. Who says owls can’t be blue? 🙂

I’ve had this stamp from Starving Artistamps for maybe a year now and I just LOVE coloring it with Copic markers! The image is a great size – perfect for the face of a card. I needed a card for a 1:1 swap on Florida Stampers, so this is it!
I stamped the image with Memento Black ink then proceeded to color with R85, Rose Red. The center was done using YG00, Mimosa Yellow and the outline was W3 Warm Gray. The stamens were detailed with Brown Flower Soft. The yellow was then finished off with a glue pen and Crystal glitter from P K Glitz.
There’s a group of us that meet at the LSS to exchange Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), usually every other month. We met this past weekend and what great themes we had! We exchanged for November, December and January due to the holidays.
November was an Autumn theme. I just had to use some mini Morsels stamps that I’ve had for quite some time. There is probably 35 or so mini stamps that are all in the Autumn theme in the set. They are similar to the Rubber Stamp Tapestry sets, but these were from Sugarloaf Stamps which became Inque Boutique which was bought by Darice. Unfortunately they’ve decided to not continue the brand. At least I have the stamps!

I already posted my December “open theme” ATC – Snowflakes – if you’d like to see it again.
The January theme was “Games or Toys”. I chose the games theme since I had some stamps to fit the bill (imagine that!). It seemed that I was sticking with the orange tones as above. Something about the game Bingo makes me think of orange. Don’t know why…

New from Starving Artistamps! Lots of options here for leaving as is, being sparse with the Flower Soft or full on! I’ll definitely be doing more experimenting with these stamps. Can you see the possibilities to make them change with the seasons or holidays? FUN!

I belong to the Unity Stamp Company‘s monthly Customer Kit Club (see blinkie on the side bar) and I really love it! The stamps in this card were from a recent Kit of the Month and it fits perfect to send to someone this month as a birthday card. Thanks Unity!
