CYCI#137 Color Challenge

I'm back with another fun challenge at

I usually get excited when I see a color challenge, but for some reason this color combo stumped me. In my arsenal of coloring mediums, I only have one item that is chartreuse - Ken Oliver's Color Burst chartreuse! I decided to go ahead and watercolor a background piece. I also added a touch of splatter with Fun Stampers Journey lime green silk. It's more on the green side but the shimmer is almost chartreuse so I thought it worked!

This adorable owl is from the Lil' Bloomin' Owl kit from Unity. I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Papertrey Ink's white card stock. I used the following Copics for the sweet owl - N2, N4, N7, and C1 for the body; R43 for the heart and the flower petals; YR04 and YR07 for the beak; YR04 and YR24 for the center of the flower; YG00, YG06, and YG63 for the leaves. I added a touch of white with a white gel pen and some glittery goodness with a Sakura Gelly Roll clear pen.

A close-up of the glittery goodness.

I cut out the owl with a small circle die and distressed the edges. I thought it needed some color to help it pop so I colored it with Copics, of course! I used YG00 and YG06. I added some Basic Gray twine from Stampin' Up! and stamped the sentiment (also from the Lil' Bloomin' Owl kit) in Basic Gray ink. Hope you like it! Come play along with us at!

Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
