  6. Using the remaining Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the owl twice using Early Espresso ink.   Color in both owls using the Ivory and Bronze Blends.
  7. On one owl, color in the eyes using Light Old Olive, and the beak/feet using Light Pumpkin Pie Blend marker.
  8. On the second owl, color in the eyes using the Dark Old Olive Blend marker, and the beak/feet using the Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend marker.
