Happy St. Patrick's Day! - It's also a new Fusion Card Challenge Day - and instead of shamrocks - we're being inspired by Owls!
I was totally inspired by the owls this week rather than the sketch and here's my card:
First I did a watercolor wash on the stitched edge water color paper panel in blue and green. Next, I stenciled the tree. I stamped the owl in Archival black on a piece of Yupo (have you heard of this? it's fairly new - and I'm not really sure how to use it yet - have to check out YouTube!), clear embossed it and then water colored it with Zig Clear Color pens and a water brush. I fussy cut the owl and layered it on the card with foam dots.
What inspires you for this weeks Fusion Card Challenge? The owls or the sketch or will you do both??
