I have a very quick post for you tonight. I made a card inspired by the challenge across at Just Us Girls
And you can get a sneak of the owl, too :-)
The coloring for the owls was really simple. I put down a base color and then "stippled" the end of my Copic marker to add texture to the feathers. I finished with some B0000 around the owls and mounted the frame and the leaves over the top.
Here's my card:
You can see that I used some woodgrain card stock for the frame. I love the texture that it gives.
On a personal note:
The weather has been sublime and I have spent the last few days at my desk watching the babies flying to the feeders. Most of them are now at the point where they can feed themselves, but that doesn't stop them from squawking if they think Mom or Dad will do the job for them :-) This afternoon I watched 3 woodpeckers, 3 orioles, the catbird and the robins all trying to get to the same bowl of jelly. It was like JFK airport watching them take their turn. It was just the same at the feeder on the other end of the deck, too!
I can't get good photos through the screen - but here's a shot of the Oriole, the woodpecker and the Grosbeak
For the most part they are amazingly patient with each other. However, when the jelly starts to get low - then they aren't as patient!
Charlie decided it was too boring to watch them, so settled down in the chair
Too comfy, me thinks!
I'll be back later in the week. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
