Love Owl-Ways

I have to tell you, I am in LOVE with this new set from My Favorite Things. It was released last Wednesday and is just tooo CUTE!! As soon as I saw today's My Favorite Things sketch, I knew I wanted to use these super cute owls, from Owl For All Seasons by Stephanie Fizer, for it. Especially when I saw that it was Frances' turn to post the sketch....you know how she LOVES her owls!! Today's Ways To Use It challenge over at SCS is to use an unusual color combo...not so much unusual, but to either use your color wheel or the website provided to pick your colors. I decided to use my handy dandy color wheel from SU. Although it doesn't have the new in-colors on it, I still LOVE my color wheel. I just received an order from SU today with this yummy Prestwick DSP, so I decided to use Brocade Blue. My color wheel gave me the option of Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip or More Mustard. I went with Chocolate Chip and More Mustard. I really like this manly combo too!! I stamped my owls three times on Gina K. white and colored them all with my copics. I then left one whole for the base, cut out their entire bodies for the second layer, and then just their faces for the last layer. I added a shadow, some piercing, and some American Crafts Chocolate brads. The ribbon tabs are Brocade Blue and Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain, and then I added some Mustard grosgrain. The More Mustard panel on the base was embossed with my Argyle folder....I love that thing!! Well, that is it for me now...need to get back to stamping!! Thanks for looking!!

On another note, have you seen the new Dirty Girls????!!!! WAHOO!!! Both of the new girls are PHENOMENAL, and they totally ROCKED this months gallery!! Better check it out here!!
