Use It Challenge #16

Kristen sent my way some great matte papers from Animal Planet (?) and I just love the thickness of them as well as the patterns. This weeks challenge at USE IT! was to:
- use polka dots (background paper)
-let nature inspire you (animals )
-fave embellishments (my is the stand by ribbon, use it as much as I can!)
-mail it (this may have to wait for the next kid's b'day party....)

Was hoping to use other papers and use a new owl stamp, but got too lazy looking thru the stash of papers sitting here. So, grabbed what was handy! I am also learning how to use my waterbrush to color and to ground the image to the paper so it isn't floating- as you can see, need a touch more practice!

Enjoy your weekend- Kelly
