The new IO release is packed with all sorts of great designs for fall and the holidays and the DT has some amazing designs to share with you! This little owl captured me from the moment I saw him. There are several new owl stamps in this release from artist Gary Robertson. I created my own patterned paper in the background with the Knit Cover-a-Card background. With my MISTI, I love using my CAC stamps more and more!

 I stamped the Owl in Tree image twice and cut out the little hole in the tree with a craft knife, making a little window for the owl to peek through. I used a black charcoal pencil to give me some flat black color around the owl on the bottom layer. I framed the owl with a few layers from the All in One Rectangle Frames 2 Die Set. The little hello is from the Greeting Die Set.

Copics Used: 
Tree: E47, E49, E44, E43 & Copic Blending Solution (Fur Technique)
Owl: E35, E33, E31, E51, 0 Blender, YR27, YR23

On the inside I used the knit background again, stamping it with a faded look down the back panel. I added the Journey stamp on the inside. Finished card is an A2.

Have fun Hopping along with IO!
Here's the list of stops to make!
