I wanted to simulate the idea of the owl being stranded on the ocean, stuck on a bed of leaves. I used the FREE owl and leaf images on the Paper Smooches blog and created the water with blue paper from the MME 6x6 Happier paper pad and 2 layers of vellum. After popping up the leaves and owl's on foam adhesive, I used firefly stickles on the leaves and glossy accents on the owl's eyes for dimension. The sentiment came from the "Slang Gang" sentiment set which is AMAZING and can be purchased online here.
I had so much fun challenging myself within this challenge that I can't wait to see what next weeks new challenge is! lol :)
