Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 13

Yay!! It's another anything goes challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends! As a member of the Design Team it's my job to present the challenge to you and entice you to come join in during the next two weeks! So here's a sneak peek at my creation.

Bugaboo Stamps - Prize - 7 Images  

Karleigh Sue -  Prize - 4 Images

It was awesome to work with the Karleigh Sue image: Adrianna's Owl. I was really inspired to create something lovely. I was showing my daughter how to blend distress ink and we created several blends. So this card started with the rainbow strip. I chose all the colors for the card based on that.    

I decided to print this image on draft (economy) mode so that the outline wouldn't be dark. I plan to do this a lot more often. Although I did need to darken the eyes of the image with a copic marker, everything else was just perfect. I had so much fun coloring and creating. The Lawn Fawn die and stamp really completed the look. The circle panel is raised on the remnants of pop dots for a stable passage through the mail. Isn't she so cute!!
