Glad you dropped by to see my Week 5 challenge! (If you haven't heard about the challenge, check out "the other" Linda's blog and then join the fun!) This week we turned to page 43 for the Distress Powder technique.
Hmmmmm, Distress Embossing Powder (DEP)! I have one container of Vintage Photo (VP). What can I do? My first thought was a bear (you have noticed the name of my blog, right? There's a reason for it, which is a story for another time.)
On Saturday, I received the set of stamps I won from Tim's (Holtz) blog. On Monday, I sent Mario a note to thank him and Tim for the stamps and mentioned they sat all weekend unused. He wrote back, "Get those stamps out and start stamping!!". I saw Jason's entry for CCC #5. Good idea! Maybe I could use my new stamps for the challenge. I started thinking about what colors I could use for the witch (she makes me giggle), I could use soot black, dusty concord., shabby shutters or peeled paint, barn red, oooh I need spiced marmalade too! Then I saw Stephen's entry and decided not to use the witch. (BTW Stephen, THANK YOU, you saved me some $$ ! lol) Then it hit me - the owl would be perfect with the VP DEP! Thanks guys for the inspiration!!!! So here you go!
