Owls / autumn

The challenge over at Creation Moments Challenge blog this week is

Delicious doodles /  Owls / Autumn.
I had a lovely image of a barn owl
Looking at him made me thinking of an owl sat in a tree.
So I embossed a sheet of brown card, so It looked like the bark of a tree.

After tinting the image with a caramel pro-marker,
I then  had to then made it look like he was looking out of a hole in the truck of the tree,
so I cut the image out using a circle die.
To make the leaves  I took a piece of white card a spritzed it with a couple of dylusions.
Once dry I used one of my leaf dies to cut out a number of leaves.
After covering the front of a 6x6 card blank with a piece of patterned paper,
which reminded me of forest / trees.
I then mounted the embossed card on to the paper,
and the stuck the owl image in the centre.
Finally I stuck the leaves around the "hole".
To finish off the card, I added a sentiment.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog,  please come back again soon
