This is my first post as a Guest Designer for Quirky Crafts Challenges!  You have until March 1 to post your project with the theme of 'Layers'.  The challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and I was given one of her images to play with.  This 'Smart Owl' really tickled my owl fetish I've had lately :)  I had this paper from Kaisercraft called 'What a Hoot' that I had picked up because I LOVED it but no plans.  This image gave me a plan to do with it.  I started off by printing 4 copies of the image onto copic paper, about 3" square (the nice thing about digi images... you can resize to your use!)

I coloured the images with my Stampin' Up markers, then cut out layers from two of them.   Once finished colouring, I cut out a full image with Spellbinders Labels 2.  The spare image was roughly cut out and used as a mask to cover the colouring and then sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang: Treasure Island Turquoise.

I covered a card front with a 5x6.5" piece of the pattered paper, then a 4.5x6" of the reverse side.  The ribbons running down the side are from Magenta and Maya Arts.  The die cut image was matted with a piece of the same paper then pop dotted onto the front of the card.  The pieces I cut out of the other coloured images were then pop dotted on top of the main image. 

Finishing touches include the 'Thanks' stamp by Stampin' Up, White Zig Wink of Stella brush on the glasses and a couple of green plastic squares from my kit.
