Polkadoodles Blog Embossing Challenge

This week I have created a card for Polkadoodles using the digi ' Octavia Best Friends'. You can find the image here:
I have to say I really love this image- those who know me know I love owls so this image was a delight to colour.
Would you like the chance to win this digi image? Just leave a comment below and Nikki will be picking a winner. I will let you know who it is on my next blog post for Polkadoodles so check back soon and in the meantime visit the shop and maybe give in to a little temptation!

I coloured the image using the following Copic markers:
Skin: E51, E53, E93, E04
Owl: E30, E13, E15, E19, Y38
Dress: B91, B93, B95, B97
Hair: E32, E35, E37
W2 used for shadows
I used Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection Core'dinations Tim Holtz range (17). This was a lovely shade of blue and I put a piece of it in a Tim Holtz Snowflake embossing folder from the Alterations series before sanding it back to reveal the craft core. This paper was a little delicate to distress after sanding.
The embossing powder sprinkled on the card was Stampendous Frantage 'Shabby White'. I used this on the inside of the card along the edge to create a background texture for the snowflakes. The snowflake edge was made using 'Snow Flurries' On Edge Die by Sizzix- Tim Holtz.
I placed a white strip of snowflakes behind the blue ones to add a little more white and dimension to the card.
Other embellishments were mulberry flowers, parts of a blue Prima flower sprig, Provocraft Clear Rhinestones and a little Waterfall Stickles.
I hope my image inspires you to enter the  embossing challenge at:
