I made the owl on the branch represent the white panel on the sketch. Instead of the Moon that I'd originally planned, I made the star be a sun trying to glow through the chill Autumn Sunset.
The cute Owl on a Branch image is from Lemon Shortbread designs. I colored it with Copic Markers. I made it's eyes a brighter black using a black Micron pen then topped them with Accent Essentials.
I covered the image with Masking Glue so I could blend the inks for the sunset all around it. I started by lightly covering the whole background with YoYo Yellow (retired SU!) then placed a circle of mask-paper where I wanted the sun. I followed with So Saffron (retired SU!) and Vintage Photo (Distress Ink) mostly along the top bit. I did add a bit of Certainly Celery (retired SU!) particularly along the bottom, because I always feel that the light is just a bit greenish in Autumn!
The sequins are all from sets I purchased from Amazon. The sentiment was from a Paper Smooches stamp set, stamped with Versafine brown and heat embossed with clear powder. I cut the frame with a die and put 2 layers of foam tape behind the acetate. The interior message was from the same Paper Smooches stamp set and the brown Versafine ink.
I really enjoyed making this shaker card! Please be sure to check out the other examples made by the great DT at the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog!
