Night Owl

Happy Halloween!

Sharing the result of another dive into the Halloween stash drawer today.  I had a lot of inky fun with this card!  It was semi-inspired by Tim Holtz's October least using an owl in a frame...the rest was all me.  J

I love embossing chipboard and adding lovely layers of ink.  The green brocade frame has just a touch of sparkle from the Starburst sprays, as does the night sky behind our owl friend thanks to dots of Platinum Stickles.
Mr. Owl was stamped full image was colored for the background and one owl was colored, fussy cut, Glossy Accent-ed, and layered on top with foam tape to pop him out of the frame.

Who?  Who to boo with this card this All Hallow's Eve?...hmm...
