Papertake Weekly challenge. This week it is 'spots & stripes', used the fab download paper from Kaboodle Doodles 'Morris ance' kit which is mainly greenish papers so it is also going for ABC challenge 'G for Green'. The backing brown card is from my grocers from the banana box! Well would you belive it she will be saving me some more, so perfect for the distressed look cards and very similar to Kraft, weighty too... so I put some texture on it through my Cuttlebug, but before that I used Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink pad and stamped a Grunge corner from Stempelglede Stamps, heart and flower stamps from Crafters Companion, owl stamp freebie from Craft Stamper mag, it really reminds me of Autumn, hand drawn branch, sentiment made up of mini alpha stamps and American Craft stamps, Mrs Owl has been paper pieced with stripes and looks like she's got a pinny on ready for baking, bit of white Sakura gel pen for accenting, and WOW flowersoft in Heather for extra texture for Funky Fairys challenge 40 'Touchy Feely', sketch used is from Sketch Saturday #74, this is going for Allsorts #24 'Furry Friends' and a new challenge Crafty Calendar ( a monthly challenge) their very first one so just had to have a go and join in! Have a fab evening until next time.
