Here's another card featuring a Doodle Factory creature. I wanted to colour one of the images, I picked the owl, and from there this card just grew. The owl needed a place to sit, so I drew and cut out the branch. Then the branch needed to be part of a scene, so I traced a roll of tape for the moon. Then the sky needed a bit more something, so I drew and cut out some clouds. Finally, I needed a greeting, so bring on the puns! My sister provided me with this one. The greeting, done in snap stamps, is on a piece of acetate the same size and shape as the moon, just in case I made any mistakes. It also gives the moon a bit of a glow. I placed the owl up on foam tape to give a bit more dimension to the scene. I sponged all the other scene elements- the moon, clouds, and sky, with various colours to also add more depth. I haven't really done a card like this before, so I had lots of fun with it!
