Just Celebrate

Another dirty challenge in the Dirty Dozen Alumni forums! These are so much fun.... I was happy that I could play this month.

Here is the challenge:

Challenge Focus:
Owls. If you don't have an owl image you may use any flighted fowl to play.

Required Element: Texture. You may interpret this any way you like - please explain in your upload description

Restricted Element: No crystals/rhinestones or dew drop type embellishments.

Keyword: DCWH508 (for Dirty Challenge Whoo Hoo May 08 )

The only owl I own is one from Stampin'Up! in the set Just Celebrate. I masked him, then stamped the flowers, then used my Copic Airbrush system to make the grass and the sky. First part of my texture requirement is the grass. I used the airbrush system to spray the grass with G03, then splattered some more color with G99. Later I added more color with the marker itself, then added my texture by taking a wash cloth and adding some colorless blending solution (the magic juice) and dabbing it on the grass. It takes away some color so that you can see some of the original color. I love that stuff.... it's like magic! The other texture part would be the Cuttlebugged background. No bling... I did it! :)

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Just Celebrate, Year Round Fun II
Paper: Shimmery White, Close to Cocoa, Jersey Shore DS Paper, Prints Pack, Rose Red.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics
Other: Cuttlebug, Embossing Folder, Grosgrain Ribbon, Crystal Effects, White Gel Pen, Colorless Blending Solution, Dimensionals, Scor-pal, Nesties.
