Owl on the Outhouse

This card was made for a couple challenges, a sketch challenge by Asela Hopkins and the inspiration challenge at SCS today.

The inspiration piece was a gorgeous picture of an outhouse with a rooster perched on it. I decided to recreate it by drawing an outhouse and placing an owl over it.

I colored the owl and outhouse with Koh-i-noor pencils and blended with OMS. I heat embossed the owl with clear embossing powder and raised it up with pop dots.

The layer behind the outhouse is Very Vanilla sponged with Certainly Celery and dry embossed with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder. There is a layer of Basic Black behind that and the card base is Wild Wasabi, sponged with Chocolate Chip.

If you have Botanical Dreams (or any Gina K stamps), you could win Asela's next stamp set by participating in this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy crafting!

Great job with the drawing and everything else.
Have a question for you, may be a couple. What embossing powder do you use? Do you cut out the image and then emboss or emboss and then cut? Your images are so perfectly embossed, I would like to know your secrets and may be I will get better at mine.
