Owl You Doin?

Waiting til the last minute again!

Here's my card for the current Sweet Stamp Shop challenge, which was a sketch challenge. 

Isn't he cute?  I have to say I'm starting to enjoy the whole coloring thing.  I was so intimidated about it, but it's fun, and makes me feel like a kid again.

I'm using Melvin from Melvin and Vernie.

I stamped him four times, and cut away part of his feathers each time so I could stack him and create some texture/depth/dimension.  He's colored with Spectrum Noir makers.  I only adhered the pieces at the head so that there's some movement.  Here's a closeup so you can get a better idea of what I'm talking about. 

The branch was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and papers are from my 6x6 stash (MME, and Crate). and I added a little CTMH burlap ribbon for more texture.

Fun right?

Hope they think so over at Sweet Stamp Shop!

Have a great weekend.  I'm off today with Ellie since her school is closed.  We've been running around doing errands, but 'rest time' is almost over so I gotta run...
