Art Pieces ATC - Owls

This weeks challenge at Art Pieces was to make an ATC with one or more owls on it.

I chose to re-size a cutting file from Tina at Forever Memories For You.  This woman is amazing!  Her cards and projects are simply out of this world! Pop on over there to have a look through what she has made.

March 046

There are several layers used for this owl and I used Tim Holtz Distress inks in shades of Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo. I used Spiced Marmalade on the beak and added googly eyes. The white rings around the eyes are coloured with a correction pen, of all things.

The main ATC is backed with textured silver cardstock. It was reasonably labour intensive but I love that this sort of challenge allows you to use techniques or product that you would probably dismiss when doing a swap of 9 or more.
