Be Square with a Bad Hair Day

How's that for a catchy title? This is a card I made for an "angel" swap. Since I only have 2 of the new sets (I haven't sent in an order yet) and the swap was for favorite new images I had very little choice in what I could use! But I do really like this Be Square set!

I used Bazzil Mono Browns cardstock, Burnt UmberPH ink, Prismacolor H2O pencils, Niji Water Brush, Grey Tombow Marker, Crystal Lacquer, Pop Dots, and Pearl Ex. The dots on the side were made with my 1/4" hole punch then the circles were glued on and lacquered. I didn't have enough brads for the number of cards I needed to make. I took a close-up of the owl so you can see the coloring and the eyes. They literally glow! I'm trying to remember where I got the sketch so when I find out where I'll edit this post. Don't you just love this little guy!!

Too funny! I used this same set with the same saying. Great minds, I guess.
