Owl Journal - kraft challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers

  Have you ever tried the kraft colored cardstock from Neenah called 'desert storm' - It is just wonderful to color on. I love how the skin tones look on kraft and the 'desert storm' is nice and sooth and easy to color on!!!
  So for the 'kraft' challenge this week over at Sweet Pea Stampers I started with this beautiful image from Sweet Pea Stamps called 'Silentness'(owl version) by Elaine Cox
and printed her onto the 'desert storm' cardstock. I colored her with prismacolor pencils.
  I layered her to some kraft core - coordinations paper that was embossed with a texture folder and sanded off.
  The base layer on this journal is normal kraft cardstock that I embossed with the same folder as the middle layer and inked the texture with gray ink.
  I edged the main layer and the journal layer with silver metallic ink and added some pearl drops with a silver fabric paint pen from tulip and added some white feathers too.
  You can find this great image as both a rubber stamp and digital image here -  - below is a coupon good through this weekend!!!! :) Sweetness!!!
  Join us and play in our challenge this time and you could win some free images from Sweet Pea Stamps :)
  All for me today - Take Care!!!
