Day 27 of 31: Owl be Watching

Hello! It's Day 27 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I have another Stampendous card to share with you today that is going along with the theme for this week, "All About the Dead." I used the Tombstone Owl for this card.


I colored this fabulous image with my Tombow watercolor markers. The card itself is Kraft cardstock, and I embossed NK Studio's Wired image with    embossing powder.

I love the mix of colors in this powder. It looks complicated, but it's only only one bottle of powder that has been used.

I stapled the image to the card for a little more metallic and texture. I kept it simple because the background is sort of busy, and because the image itself is so striking. Be sure to visit the rest of my Stampendous teamies that are featuring projects today. And don't forget about the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
