The Details

The moon made me do this! I really wanted to create a glowing moon night sky for that owl. I grabbed some wonderful Gina K Ink cubes and brushes to make the background. It came together wonderfully.

Check out the video to see watch the ink blending action.

Creative Tip: Use vellum to tone down a background. The background was vibrant and colorful which made seeing the owl a bit difficult. By stamping the owl on vellum, you can still see that glowing moon but the owl is now easily seen.
