It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week we ask you to use this color combination in your creation:
- OR - use woodgrain. Or heck - use both!
I started out with the colors, but ended up with mostly woodgrain:
I did direct-to-paper with a piece of woodgrain card stock and my Hero Arts Soft Pool ink pad. It's unevenly inked, and I like it that way. :) I cut the circle with my Lil' Inker Stitched Mats: Circles (I loooooove how it leaves a faux stitched edge behind!) Then I die-cut another circle - larger than the opening - out of the same woodgrain card stock and I inked that one up with Soft Sand.
The owl is from Paper Smooches, and I have to tell you: a few of my first attempts were in the colors in the color graphic above, and, well, he was fugly. Just too too, if you know what I mean. So I stamped him again and went with muted browns. I did add Enamel Accents to his eyeballs when I was finished, the better to see you! Also, I like that his wing drapes over the opening a bit.
Because my Woohoo! sentiment was still out on my desk, I used it, then put it away. You're welcome. I went back to the color thing and added an old SU button from my Every Color Green But The One I Need jar of green-ish-yellow-y buttons as opposed to my jar of Every Color But The One I Need jar of green-ish-blue-y buttons.
Now it's your turn! Go into your stash and pull out stuff to match the color part of the challenge, or use something woodgrain-y, then make a card and come back to Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made.
Thanks for stopping by!
