May is always hectic for me – between Teacher Apprecation & Mother’s Day at the beginning of the month and end of school stuff at the end…I just don’t have a whole lot of time for fun stamping.
I needed to make a RAK card today and decided to pull up a challenge – the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. They’ve changed their format and now they have different challenges every week. This week’s challenge is a color challenge (May21 Cool Shades). I interpreted the colors as light blue, medium blue, yellow-green, and orange.
I thought the “woohoo” sentiment was perfect for what I needed so I created the scene around the owl image. Things just kept jumping into the scene – definitely not my typical CAS style, lol. I love how even though the owl isn’t all that big, because he’s the only orange thing, he pops and draws your eye.
When coloring the owl I chose to do straight color instead of shading and did his feathers in a gradient of oranges.
