We have a new challenge starting at Love to Scrap Challenge Blog.  Get ready.  It's everyone's favorite "Anything Goes"!!  WooHoo!!  Get your crafting tiara ready and join us.

The sponsor I have for this round is

Prize: 3 images of choice

There are two other sponsors this week also.  Please go to LTSCB to see what you can win.

I was given this adorable owl from Oddball Art.  I think it's so cute.  After coloring the owl I used my stylist to give it some dimension then painted it with Glossy Accents.  By painting it on instead of just dropping it from the bottle it keeps the dimensions I added.   I cut the sentiment out five times and glued them together also for dimension.  I added the Glossy Accents to this also.

I have had this wood paper for ages.  Finally I have a way to use it.  It comes solid with embossing.  I sanded over the embossing to reveal the inside color.  I've used other paper from the pack but have never used the wood grain.  

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to hop over to LTSCB and check out all the fabulous inspiration the DT have for you.

Have a blessed day!
