Birthday Hoot

Well, clearly I've been into my Hero Arts stash!  This image I recieved in a Blog Candy win and I love this guy!!  I stamped the branch a few times and then placed him on top.  While I added the ink colors to the stamp for the branch, the owl is an outline image so I colored him in with various Copic markers. 

The sentiment is from Wise Owl, a Papertrey Ink owl set.  The image felt masculine so I wanted to keep is that way ... which makes me turn to tearing as a way to add some texture and interest! 

Boy, I sure seem stuck on this layout it seems!   I'll have to mix things up in the future. 

Thanks for dropping in!

Donelda, this is fantastic! I love everything about it from the colours to the torn paper.

I think it's a fab all-purpose layout, and may just have to "borrow" it for my own cards. ;)
Love the owl, too!
