Hey hey we're the Whoots!

It seems like I have been waiting forever to ink up these Art Impressions Five Whoots.  When I saw the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week, they immediately popped into my mind, so here they are.
The background was created on white card stock with Distress inks.  I did a partial cut with the branch die and then cut the rest of the limb by hand.  I re die cut the branch in green and then glued those little leaves back on one by one.  Next I added some white ink and then Snow-Tex to the branches.
The Whoots were colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on foam dots after I used a spoon handle to round their little bodies out a bit for dimension.  Their eyes got a nice coating of Glossy Accents.

Copics Used:
owls E31, E55, Y21, E47, Y11, YR23
hats V93, V95, G21, G24, R20, R22, B41, B12, YR61, YR65

I'd like to enter this card into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Here's their sketch.

     Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
     Be blessed!
