Gotta Love a Challenge!

Hello bloggers! Happy November! I hope you had a spooktacular Halloween.
 I'm signing on today to share November's fun challenge on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog.


 Our fabulous sponsor this month is Unity Stamps so our challenge is to use stamps on any project. Now, how fun and easy is that! We crafters all have stamps of some variety so dig them out and join us in this challenge. I decided to create a card this month. I used a few Unity Stamps from several collections to create the scene on my card. The ADORABLE owl is from the September 2014 - Happy, Thankful & Blessed SMAK Kit and the leaves and branch the little owl is perched on came from the April 2014 - Wildflowers & Wings SMAK kit.  Here's the card ...


The base of the card is Distress Watercolor paper from Ranger - LOVE this paper. It's already cut to card size and ready to get inky! I embossed the owl onto the watercolor paper and then used a variety of distress inks, water and a brush to color in the owl. The distress inks work so well with the watercolor paper - they practically do the job for you. The sky and grass background was so easy - I brushed water on the paper and then added ink and let the water do the work. I stamped the leaves on a separate piece of watercolor paper, colored them in with the same method and cut them out.

 
So let's see what you come up with! Please join us in this month's challenge and you will have an opportunity to win a prize from Unity Stamps!!

 
Thanks so much for stopping by and we hope to see your project over on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge
