Challenge #9 - You're a Hoot!

Hi All,

Have you tried out our challenge for this week yet? Today's the last day of our samples for a "Monochromatic Cards" challenge! Haven't the girls done great with this one!!

I used "Owl Greetings" for my card and the "Purple Toes" Inky Links ink to sponge around the edges. I have to say, I am loving these little pads, the colors are unique and similar to chalk ink. Super value from Woodware!!
To get the embossed scallop around my owl image, I first cut out my circle, then I embedded the next smaller sized scallop die into the circle and ran it through my Big Shot using the sandwich recipe to emboss but not cut through the paper. I left the die embedded in the circle and then sponged on the "Purple Toes" ink.

My owl is colored in with Copics and I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching and highlights to complete the card.

Be sure to come back tomorrow when we introduce a brand new challenge and a whole new week of samples each day!!
