Lynx

I'm ready for the 12 Days of Halloween over at Simply Betty Stamps! Time had gotten away from me so I'm glad that I didn't miss in on the action - love the fact that I have this whole week to make up for my missed time. ;D

...my true love gave to me
An owl in a rotten oak tree!

The images that I used for this project are: Lynx from Simply Betty Stamps and for the background I used Old Oak Tree and Cave from Make it Crafty (as well as a chippie from Swirly Corners). The cat turned out to be fun and I think tells an interesting story. ;D


This was small enough that I put in my ATC Journal and kept the layout extremely simple - Other than adding a chippie and two gems, that was it and pretty much stands on it's own. I loved how it turned out, however, next time I need to figure out a better transition between the sky and the cave - maybe put some details or grass at the top of the rocks?


The background was inspired by the Spooky Night Sky challenge over at Make it Crafty and since it was my "brilliant" idea, I thought I'd come up with another example but this one not so scary. I kept the upper corner with the moon bright then went as dark as possible in the other corners to hopefully give the feel of a spooky dark forest. The eyes were added for fun and rather completes the project, I think.


Update: I'm the 2012 DT winner of the 12 Days of Halloween at Simply Betty Stamps!
