Less is More 35...The Color of Your Eyes

This week's challenge at Simply Less is More is to make a card with the color of your eyes.  Hope you can tell what color mine our!:
Ok...there's a touch of red...I figure it could be the bloodshot in my eye during this allergy season, again:)!!  I got my Big Shot a couple days ago...YEAH!!!!  The last two cards were made before it's arrival. Made this one with a die from Memory Box. The sentiment on this one is from Hero Arts(Very Merry Christmas), as is the tiny ornament(found in a set of sentiments - Holiday Sayings). Used a couple different Bazzill white papers, tearing one for the snow.
 Made this one with Papertrey Ink's Larger Than Life...stamping in Chocolate Chip ink the Papertrey Ink sentiment as well(Signature Greetings).  I used Ranger Stickles Walnut Stain color to dot the stems.  Here's a close look:
 This last one has colors other than just brown, let it be known that I tried to make a brown owl...it just didn't work.  I'm adding it to this post, anyway:)!  I have had the hardest time making an owl that is the "cutest thing ever" with this punch...so after googling pictures of owls, I found that many of them are grey and white...but almost all of them have bright yellow in their eyes...so this is a more realistic owl than cutesie!
I used a background woodgrain stamp by All Night Media, the Stampin Up owl punch and a sentiment from Stampendous.  I stamped the woodgrain and cut the paper with slight curves so it looked like a tree, cut a hole out and used another stamped piece to put behind the owl.  Popped up on bazzill white card.  Used Chocolate Chip paper and ink.
Thanks for looking, I hope your day is wonder-filled!!!

  3. A perfect group of cards! I love the bare tree with the single ornament. (I just got an order of Memory Box dies but wouldn't you know it, I did not order that tree....I really want to CASE it). The Larger than Life on the textured paper is beautiful, and the details on the owl card are perfect...right down to cutting curves on the tree!

  11. These are all wonderful Lisa. I do love that tree! and that little touch of bloodshot eye is the perfect pop! The second card is beautifully simple and elegant, and the owl in the tree is adorable. What a great idea to put him in the hole in the tree. Great bunch of creations!
