Sunday Postcard Art - Owls

Over at Sunday Postcard Art the theme this week is Owls. Having said that, I now present this:
I used a color image from an old 1925 book about birds, altered it with Spica, Sakura and Micron pens and brushes. Distress ink was added, along with some ephemera from Tim Holtz and it was finished off with a rubber stamp sentiment at the top. Hooray for Sundays and Owls!

On another note, I am becoming quite overwhelmed with all of the wonderful and fabulous companies which design and sell rubber stamps! I have added many to my collection over the past weeks and today I found another company! It makes it so hard to choose, and to stick to a budget. It seems that every other blog I read mentions another enticing stamp which calls out to be added to my collection. What's a poor artist to do??

  17. Thank you all for your very sweet comments. I hope that I have not misled anyone, this was a colored image from a book which I enhanced with pens, distress inks and added things. I don't want to take credit for the drawing itself.
