I haven't played along a with a challenge at Less is More for a while and thought it was about time I put that right.
This week's challenge is a sketch. I sat down with a fairly literal take on it in mind and ended up with something completely different! The idea of the sketch is still there but the three evenly sized and spaced circles have transformed themselves into a family of three owls!
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win blog candy from the Craft Room as they launched their own challenge blog - thank you Julia! - and these Hero Arts owl stamps were part of my goody bag. Cute aren't they?
They're stamped on kraft and have just a bit of colour added with a Copic marker and their eyes done with a white gel pen.

Also in my goody bag was this 6x6" paper pad by Kars. Now regulars to my blog will know that I really struggle with patterned paper. Whatever I do with it takes an eternity and I'm rarely happy with the outcome. With that in mind, I asked Julia (owner of the Craft Room) if she'd mind if I gave the pad away - better that than have it sitting feeling lonely in a drawer! They're nice bright colours and funky patterns - some designs have a glittered version as well as the printed one.
So, if you'd like to offer the papers a new home, just let me know in a comment on this post and I will draw a name at random. Let's say comments before midnight (UK time) Sunday 4th July, shall we?
Thanks for stopping by!
