On Board Owl

Last night I decided to just play, and so I pulled out something I'd been wanting to do for ages: cover one of the On Board So Tweet chipboard owls with DSP. I'm pleased to say that he pretty much came out as expected (though I was thrilled the Haiku pattern was such a perfect size for the eyes), but then I had to think what to do with him! I decided to put him on a card, and though the latest Weekend Sketch Challenge would suit... if you want to be particular the oval is the circle from the sketch and the owl is the large rectangle behind that. I was going to add a large rectangle of DSP behind the owl but everything I tried distracted from him, so he's just out on a (ribbon) limb with no treetrunk in sight!
