Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #114 - Colouring

Today at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Edna wants us to use our colouring skillz.

Now colouring isn't really my strong point, especially when it comes to detail, but I recently won some sweet large image stamps from Daisy Mae designs which just cry out to be coloured carefully, so I decided to play with the Owl On A Swing stamp.

I added a branch stamped with a magazine freebie stamp then coloured the image with Promarkers. I did worry about giving the owl blue eyes - I know owls don't have blue eyes, but then they don't wear dungarees either and  an owl would be more likely to stick a mouse in its beak than in its pocket, so I think those blue eyes are perfectly acceptable.

I fussy cut the branch end of the image and inked the edges of the rest, layered it onto wood grain effect card  then added flowers and snark - the latter being a Dylusions sentiment.

I am sharing this with

You sell yourself short on your colouring skillz, Jane! This is delightful! And so subtly snarky. :D
