This Owl is Spooked!

As I was typing up yesterday's post, a light bulb went off and I came up with another idea for the owl image from Sunflowers and Dragonflies.

Here it is as promised! What do you think?

I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol. Then I created a Post-It Note mask for the owl and a circle for the moon and sponged the background in blue & black inks. I also put my Cricut to use & cut out leaves and glued them on the branch that the owl is sitting on.

I colored his eyes with a yellow Bic Marker to give bolder look to his eye. Does he look spooky to you?

Stamps: Sunflowers and Dragonflies-Owl
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in French Blue, Charcoal, Yellow Orchre, SU! ink in Night of Navy, Summer Sun
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by The Paper Company, American Crafts
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Bic Markers, Cricut and Calligraphy Collection Cartridge, SU! Photo Corner Punch, Brads by Making Memories
Finished Card Size: 4.25" x 5 1/8"

Well, it is Sunday, so for this week's Fun Filled Friday Challenge, Kimmy has challenged us to create a card with 4 layers. This should be too difficult for me since I usually over-layer my cards. You'll have to wait until Friday to see what I come up with!
I guess that's it for now. I'm getting off this computer & I'm going to go enjoy the rest of my weekend!

Hope you do too! Thanks for stopping by today!

The moon background is perfect for this owl image! I agree that the yellow eyes are a wee bit spooky, but owls are a little spooky -- majestic, but spooky, too.
