Happy Labor Day! I've been off spending the last few days of summer with the DH and kiddos. As sad as I am to see summer end, I think I'm ready for everyone to get back on a schedule.
Today's card uses one of the new AmberINK digital Book Plates- Owls. I have a soft spot in my heart for owls. I just think they're so cute! Back in college I did my internship at a avian rehabilitation center. One of my favorite residents was this adorable, blind saw whet owl. Such a cutie! I used a bit of artistic liberty when coloring this cute guy in. I colored him with Copics and then went in with my Koh-i-noor pencils and added some more shading in. The originally digital image has a tree limb filled with 3 owls. I cut the other owls off and trimmed the tree a bit shorter to fit on my card. I cut his wing away from the book and popped it up on pop dots. The "take note" is an older October Afternoon rubon that I added to the book.
