Tan Hooter


The MFP Stamps challenge #30 is a color challenge to use "tan." I pulled out a MFP stamp set and some caramel cardstock to make this card. I colored the owl's beak and claws with a Copic marker, and added some white colored pencil to his chest and head. The vertical border was cut twice with a SSS hexagon border die in caramel and black, and I switched the negatives to give some contrast. The sentiment is also by MFP and the little negative hexes on the side balanced this out just right to my eyes.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great day.
