Hey there

Time Out Challenge #50

Hi and welcome to Home Sweet Home at Time Out ! 
This photo was our inspiration this week.

Here is my take on the newsprint and city landscapes in the picture.

Rummaging through my stamps I found an old Hero Arts newsprint owl for the focal point.  I began stamping in light grey the Hero Arts "A Village" background stamp at the bottom of the panel to help ground my awestruck owl. Stamped the owl in black and added a hint of spring green with a Prismacolor pencil. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Irresistibly Ikat stamp set.

Make It Monday #239

Customizing Patterned Paper

A piece of Treetops Glisten patterned paper was modified with a stencil and white pigment ink. After drying the ink a few of the stenciled circles were stamped with a flower center from Twig Wreath. A Keep It Simple Frames flag was die cut from bitty dot vellum, stamped with a sentiment from Framed Out #2 and decorated with Twig Wreath centers on aqua circles. The circles were given a gold Wink of Stella center and and a light coat of clear Wink of Stella. The panel was put on an Aqua Mist top folding card with rounded corners. Except for Hero Arts inks and the Heidi Swapp stencil all products used were from Papertrey Ink.
