Owl you ready...

Okay, Okay bad joke... I am going to hurry because I am on a time crunch for
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!!
Challenges Entering:

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..

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
The owl reminds me of zen-tangles.. I just love the artform and if you are not familiar with it then you should check it out. Promise you will not be disappointed.

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.

Have a great day and hopefully next time I won't wait till the last minute (literally).
See ya,

Your post made me chuckle - I thought I would be the last one to link up to The Color Throwdown this week so I was amused that you and one other came in behind me! I love this zentangle-inspired owl, and the fussy cut against the bark background with the little candy dots of colour are just gorgeous! Thanks for joining my CAS bird challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
