Ms. Hoot Shines Today

This is for today's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE. Today's color combo was Banana, Kiwi and 1 neutral. You are also to use ribbon and at least 1 button. Gotcha covered Crystal. I used Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE for my layout. This darling owl set is called Ms.Hoot and was released at midnight from TREEHOUSE STAMPS along with 2 other fantastic sets called Dino-rific and Little Sunshine - please pop over and check them out. This set and the dino-rific dinosaur set were drawn by a 13 yr old boy and submitted in a recent illustrators contest held by Ashley. My image was stamped in esspresso ink then colored using copics. I trimmed it for an out of the box look then matted on dark brown. My panels 2a and 2b are barely banana cs. 1 is stamped in close to cocoa with pretty petals background stamp and the other with a sentiment in kiwi kiss. My panel 1 is old olive pattern paper that I wished SU would bring back. I loved those prints so much more than these they currently have. I used a white prima and colored it with my copic marker then applied a button in the center. HOpe you like it.
