Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Lots of Layers

Where in the world do the week's go, it is Thursday and time for a new, Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge, and the theme is:  Lots of Layers.  I chose my new, fun to color favorite, Owl Moon,once again:

I really wanted to color these beautiful owls as Snow Owls, even though they have spikey horny facial feathers which Snow Owls don't, but since it is my card I colored it the way I wanted to anyway.  How many people looking at this have really seen a snowy Owl and know if I am right or wrong unless they look at a picture LOL.  I wanted a certain color palette and went with it.  It's Art.

I colored and airbrushed the main layer and mounted it on a plain white layer, which I then mounted on a longer layer with a scalloped doilie.  I wanted to match my tiny white lace to the pink flowers I had made but didn't have the right color... so I airbrushed it the color pink I wanted...easy peasy.  A trio of tiny bink buttons and a Happy wood die cut is used for my sentiment.  And we won't even talk about how many layers are on the hand made flowers :)  I think I covered the Lots of Layers just fine,  :)

Be sure to drop by the Challenge Blog and check out what the rest of the DT gals have created and grab a Mo's image and play along in the Challenge for a chance to win a 5 dollar gift certificate for each 25 entries in the challenge....

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful...creative...week!!!

I also sometimes would like to stop time running, Cathy! Love your sweet card. The soft colouring is beautiful and the reds give some warmth to this gorgeous but frosty image - great effect.

Hugs Anja
