Okay, now on to my card today.
I saw the colors for today's Color Challenge #176 on SCS and loved them. I also knew that they would go great with this stamp set that I have recently purchased and have barely used!
I stamped the owl on vanilla cardstock using Chocolate Chip ink. Then, I drew a vertical pencil line along the right of the image, very lightly of course, and stamped the hello sentiment 4 times. I guess I could have just used the stamp-a-ma-jig but I felt that the line was quicker and easier. Once I was sure the ink was dry, I erased it. Layered this focal image onto some River Rock paper. I was going to put this onto the Soft Sky card but felt it needed a little something more. I found this awesome blue tinted vellum in my scraps so I added a small layer under the River Rock. I really like the effect!!
I used the small leaf/pinecone image from Lovely as a Tree set with Versamark to create a little bit of interest on the background. Added some double stitched ribbon in River Rock and voila, a finished card!!
