The Owl and the Parrot

Blue, Brown and Bling
That is the challenge for this week.
It has a nice ring to it
Blue, Brown and Bling.

I used the same little owl from the "What a Hoot"
(Sale Still in Progress)
as I did for my inchie posted yesterday.
This time he is a blue and brown owl but I enlarged him
quite a bit for this card. The branch is also from the same
set. They are layered on to misc background paper with
pop dots. He has crystal gems in his eyes for the Bling.
You're a Hoot is computer generated. It turned out
a lot cuter than I expected.

Hello, Hello anybody there?

This is my card for the

The image is from
It was originally black and white only. After
printing the image for this card I colored the parrot
using colored pencils. It gave Polly nice green and
yellow feathers. Just a tad of color in a pretty
neutral card. The lace is from my scrap pile and the
I used beach glass for embellishment.
Pearlized gray has the corners rounded and
layered on to a flat black base.

Hope you are having a Happy Father's Day!
