I made this for Janelle's MIX244 mixed media challenge today. Thanks to the early post, I was able to make a cling-wrap background using spray starch and Brusho acyrlic mists (dark brown, sand, plus some moss green powder) and leave it drying while I went and visited a friend. Unfortunately by the time I'd embossed it (Sizzix ef) it's hard to see! The overlay was also cut from a piece of cling-wrap background which I'd made last weekend and not used. I punched leaves from part of it too, coated them with a clear glitter pen and then drew on some outlines and veining with a black pen. It looked better before I decided to stick down a feather, but once one was stuck on, I was committed - so I added another leaf and a tag punched from the same background, and a few dots of gold stickles.
Before all this finishing work, I die-cut the oval window in my brown piece and embossed it.
The curtains are made from piece of tissue misted with gold shimmer spray, and then stamped with leaves when it was dry. I used a large oval die, then cut it almost in half up the centre and gathered it up, using gold cord as tie-backs.
The little owls were stamped on a scrap of watercolour paper and coloured with Polychromos pencils, plus more glitter on the moon. I wet the background and used faded jeans to colour it.

Oh Sabrina, this is such a magical scene! I've scrolled back up so many times to take in all the details. The curtains are a sweet surprise and so very pretty. I love the screen and the feathers. Heck, what's not to love!!

Great feathers Sabrina. I was in my front yard this week and found a really cute feather that I picked up. Now to make a card out of it before my girls think it is a treat. LOL! Super cute window card for the challenge.

Sabrina, there are so many fun elements to this wonderful card. I just love the curtains framing the oval window with the cute owl couple and the woodgrain embossed bg turned out lovely and rich in color. The little leaves are outstanding and the feathers are a perfect addition to this cute woodsy scene.
