Shimmering winter owl scene ~ card tutorial

        This is a seasonal or holiday card featuring a shimmering winter owl scene.  Today on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to make these background techniques work together for a dimensional winter scene.

Hope this season brings you plenty of what makes you happy.

Using metallic splatters, color cardstock, hand cut slopes and a big moon helps to make this shimmering winter owl scene come to life.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Helpful tips:

These are helpful tips to create this 
shimmering winter owl scene.  To begin, stamp the owl and the sentiment, add color and trim to make a tag.  Next, trim or die-cut dark blue cardstock for a background panel.  Then, add watercolor or paint spatters to the blue cardstock in white and metallic gold.  Also, make a moon using distress ink and a circle die-cut.  Next, hand cut two snow slopes from white cardstock.  Add layers of gray on the slope edges for the look of dimension.  Finally, layer it all, to finish.

And here is another look.
