I really enjoy combining challenges...it just adds to the pleasure of creating! This card was created for the following challenges: this week's Gothic Arch challenge is to use orange and black; TwoPeas Stamptoberfest challenges are Fall is Fabulous, Marianne's last minute Halloween Card challenge, Sue and Tanya's Earth challenge; Saturday Surprise wants us to do something autumn themed; One Powerful Hour wants something spooky; Finally Friday's challenge is to emboss and layer; Secret Crafters want us to use orange and another colour; Our Creative Corner wants us to use a favourite holiday book or movie title in our card. I based this card on the book "Owl Moon," by Jane Yolen, a beautifully illustrated book for the 4 to 8 age group. I bought it for my grandson, who loves to have it read to him. I'll actually send this card along to him in the post tomorrow.
The background tree stamp is Cornish Heritage Farm; the owl and flourishes are from Crafty Individuals. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink with Versafine Onyx black with a resist for the owl arch.
The current SAWO challenge is to make your own jewelry. Here's a set I made for my "Pink Lady Challenge" over at TwoPeas. If you haven't participated in the fabulous Two Peas stamp extravaganza all week, there's still time...you have till midnight tonight to play! Happy pea members have posted all kinds of great challenges with generous RAKS, and the grand prize from American Crafts is spectacular. Go visit the stamping message boards, play today!
