Hope Its A Hoot

Happy Hump Day. We got to shovel 3 inches of light and fluffy this morning before we could go to work. But it was so much easier than the last snow which was wet and heavy. So it didn't take us long to shovel the driveway so we could get out. So far they haven't said how much more we'll get on Friday. Maybe I'll go to the grocery tomorrow just in case. LOL!
I worked on day 5 of Bugaboo's Jungle Birthday Celebration this evening. The theme today is to make it funny and use an animal.
I so love the card I did today. I love the contrast of the night background and the moon with the owl.


This is an image called Owl by Bugaboo. I colored him with Copic markers. I cut the moon from yellow card stock from my scrap box and then inked it with distress inks: spun straw and fossilized amber to give it more of a moon feel. The background is a dark blue piece of cards stock from my scrap box. The brown scraps were embossed with the Spellbinder's bark embossing folder for the tree with a darker brown behind it as a shadow. I added some leaves to the side made from a scrap of green and punched from the laurel leaf punch. I popped up the owl over all the layers. I used the Tuesday Morning sketch for inspiration.


I am entering these challenges:
We're on the downside of the week. And I am looking forward to the weekend. I hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along with the Bugaboo birthday celebration. It's so much fun!
