Power Poppy Quiet Christmas: Forest Fellas!

Hi all and welcome to PART TWO of Power Poppy's Quiet Christmas release! Back at the end of October, the Bloomies showcased five new holiday and winter-themed sets that won so many of you over. Well, get ready for the second installment with more illustrations bound to knock your creative socks off! Today's set is for the lover of those creatures that dwell in the forest and this set comes with a whole host of sentiments that will have you reaching for this set all year long! 

Take a peek at the new set Forest Fellas! Isn't it absolutely adorable? I love each and every one of the "fellas" in this set and know I will have fun creating. Because I have an affinity for owls, I had to reach for that image first! 

On to my creation! 

When I was "Googling" owls, I realized this one bore a resemblance to the Barred Owl. Oh my gosh, click the link and you'll see -- so cute! I know, many of you might say, an owl? Cute? Yep. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! 

I colored this fella using the photos of the owl as my guide and literally scribbled shades of brown all over the feathers and then with the tip of my Copic, flicked color on the body to give the impression of texture. Not sure it worked! I am not the best at feathers, fur or hair. :-) After I was done coloring him up, I added BV0000 and BV00 to the background to give a kind of wintery feel and added some white gel pen to give the effect of snow. I really think it turned out cute and I will have fun sending this bit of snail mail off to a friend! 

Want to see what the rest of the Bloomies did with this darling set? Just hop on over to see these fine ladies and don't forget to pay the Power Poppy blog a visit to see the back story on this set from Marcella herself! 

Tomorrow's set is one with another woodland theme. It's creative and over the top fun, so swing on back and see for yourself! 

Until then!
