Simon Monday Challenge:Throwback

Simon Monday Challenge Blog

So, Simon's Monday Challenge was to pick a past challenge and I decided to go with the same theme as Emma,  To The Moon, which you can read about here.

I'm still in the fall mode and have not gotten tired of the leaves, the crisp air or the pumpkin flavors yet.
 It IS my favorite time of year!!

I am not quite ready to dive right into Christmas yet although
I have done a couple small projects.

Anyway,  I've been wanting to use this adorable owl stamp I
got from Penny Black that I love and this was the perfect chance.

I stamped my owl in Ranger black archival ink. Masked him off with a circle. Stamped the Tiny Star
Background(Basic Grey) with versamark and used hologram embossing powder. I kept the mask on and colored the night sky with distress inks.  I finally colored my cute owl with my zigs and used some wink of stella. I used glossy accents for his eyes which ended up bleeding a little but it didn't bother me, I still like the way he turned out. I planned on putting a sentiment bubble but didn't like anything I came up with so I left it out all together. It's hard to see his sparkle but he really does shine!!

  I sent this little guy to someone in my Birthday Club on FB. Let me know if you're interested in joining. All you have to do is send three cards a month and two in your birthday month and you receive 35 on your birthday. Lots of fun!!
