Christmas Owl card with Art Impressions stamp

Here today with a cute little owl card! I kinda love owls lately for whatever reason. This stamp set though, just caught my eye, these cute owls with their cute little hats! This stamp set is from Art Impressions, which is another new company in to my stamp stash and I just love it.

I will be participating this card in the Simon Says Stamp Christmas/Holidays challenge over on their Wednesday challenge blog today and also their Holiday card challenge over on their Monday challenge blog. :)

Ok so onto the how to.
I stamped the owls with Memento ink onto a heavier base white cardstock because I colored with copics.
The branch I drew in my self. I am not a drawer! Just sketched it with pencil and then colored it in with copics and outlined in with a black pen.
I then colored in all the owls. I varied the browns on all of them. (I will list all the copics below)
I then stamped and embossed all the snowflakes in the background (stamp set is Endless Wishes by Stampin up) with versa mark and white embossing powder.
Before i added the blue sky background I needed to mask off my owls. However I was too lazy to fussy cut out a mask to lay on it so I just covered the whole image with glassy accents. Oh I added wink of Stella glitter to the hats first of course:) 
After the glossy accents completely dried I used my Ranger blending tool and blended varies shades of blue ink on the top.
Wiped the ink of owls and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment.
