Here is my card from a different view, so you can see the way I used pop dots to make the owl stand out on the tree branch.
Here is my owl close-up. I embossed him with sand embossing powder I bought at Archivers. They had a demo one day and I had to have it. I am glad I finally used it....LOL! Then I colored the white places on him with cocoa marker. For his beak I used bamboo marker a couple different times to make it darker. I finished him with chocolate brads for his eyes.
