Day 3 of A Stenciled Christmas combines two of my favorite companies, Lawn Fawn and Tim Holtz. I wanted to create a card with this super cute owl but I hadn’t purchased any background woodgrain stamps or stencils yet. So, after thumbing through my stencils I found a vertical stripe layering stencil from Tim Holtz. This was going to work. It is called Stripes, simply put. I got out my embossing paste and used Broken China Distress ink to tint the paste before applying it over my stencil. I set it aside to dry and began working on my main image.

imageI chose the cutest owl in all the land from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl stamp set and colored him with Copics. I then die cut him out with the coordinating die. I also used the sentiment and branch from another Lawn Fawn favorite called Winter Sparrows. The sentiment “Season’s Tweetings” was heat embossed in white on a vellum tag. I love the look of white embossing powder on vellum, I was first introduced to this beautiful combination by Nichol Magourik. I just love her blog.

Lastly, I added a few embellishments of pearls, gems and snowflakes for added interest. Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting! :)
