Christmas Card Gone Wrong
I'm not exactly thrilled with this card. Maybe it's because I started off wanting to make a Christmas card and it didn't end up that way, or the colour combo just isn't working, but something just isn't sitting right with me.
My daughter says it's because of how I layered the owl's eyes, because the black stands out so much it looks like the eyes are following you LOL! Do believe she is correct. Poor little guy looks more like a Halloween leftover. Note to self: don't do his eyes this way again.
So...I am limping to the finish line of this month's Verve sketches and have butchered poor Andrea's sketch. Sorry my friend...and there isn't even a skewed panel in sight LOL! Good thing tomorrow is another day :)
