MTSC Take Care of Yourself

Good Wednesday Morning Peeps!

The card I am sharing today was made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

I needed to take a bit of a break from Christmas cards, and I had just gotten this fun little set called "Whoo's your Valentine?" Don't you just love that adorable little owl. The owl has a saying under him, but when I mounted my set I cut it off and mounted it on the side of the block. That way I can use him without stamping or masking off the saying.

I stamped him with black stazon ink onto some watercolor paper. I used my aqua painter and some close to cocoa, riding hood red and more mustard ink to color him in. I added a bit of ground with tombow gray marker. I dug out some retired DS paper, Candy Lane and used some riding hood red card stock, also retired and some very vanilla card stock for the layers and matting.

This could pass for a Valentine card but also just for a general "thinking of you/caring card I think.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
