An OWL of a Challenge!

Well, I was cruising on Pinterest one day and say this amazing Owl image. After a few clicks I found this amazing die from Serendipity Stamps. They are having a challenge called, Shades of Gray, so I thought I would enter.
I started with a White Daisy card base, then added Slate cardstock and some patterned paper from retired, For Always. I used White Daisy pigment ink on the edges of a shape cut with Art Philosophy. I cut the shape in half and used a piece on either side of the border. The border is Whisper cardstock matted with White Daisy. I stamped with coordinating ink, with an image from Distressed Backgrounds, on the Whisper cardstock.

This amazing Owl die from Serendipity Stamps, was cut from Slate cardstock. There is also a die of just the Owl shape and I cut it from retired For Always paper, also. The leaves and sentiment shape are cut from Artiste, in Black and White Daisy cardstock. The sentiment was a freebie included in my die order from Serendipity Stamps. Finally, I added Clear Sparkles for the Owl's eyes and Black ones to the card.
All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
