Friendly Critter

This little owl just cracks me up. I love the expression on his face. LOL! I really liked how this card turned out. (is it ok to say that?) :) I haven't watercolored in awhile, and thought I would try out some of my new Ranger ink pads with my watercolor brush. I need to do this more often! There's something therapeutic about "painting". (all of the stamped images/backgrounds are found at Cornish Heritage Farms)
