Color Throwdown #CTD329. I have a bit more time for the The Paper Players #PP232 'Feathered Friends'. I put these two challenges together because thet work perfectly together!
Oh I hope I can make the Throwdown on time.. Has anybody done this too or am I the only crafter procrastinator!! Update: Made it with 3 minutes to spare!! Phew!!
While I was waiting to download the photos I was remembering how I loved the Color Throwdown challenge this week.. It gave me an opportunity to use a stamp I have never used before plus it went with The Paper Players #PP232 'Feathered Friends challenge.. Win! Win!
The inspiration picture from CTD instantly reminded of this adorable Owl stamp by Stampendous. I couldn't help myself when I saw this challenge!! I just kept seeing the owl, so why fight it and do it. So, I took the photo quite literally when doing this challenge. I hope you like it..

Coloring it using Prismacolor pencils in just the colors required for the challenge was just the trick for my 'feathered friend'.. I then mounted the owl on wood grain patterned paper which I then embossed in wood grain to add texture. Sponged the edges and then adhered some enamel dots for a splash of color on the brown.
Adding the sentiment by Stampin Up! Perfect Pennants was perfect to put in the 'tree knot' which was a shade (or two) darker then the wood grain.
