Professor Owl


Time for another great challenge at Through the Craft Room Door, as always it is an anything Goes Challenge.

Our generous Sponsor this week is ……….

Ike’s Art

The prize this week is …….. $10 voucher for the store

I used one of Ike's images called Professor Owl. 

What a handsome owl he is. 

I colored the image using Primacolor Pencil Crayons and Mineral Oil.  The Designer paper by ShokART  was used for the background along with an altered wooden butterfly, so rubber stamps and gears.   I used Nuvo  Crystal Glace on the owls eyes and pocket watch.  This was a fun card to make.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to pop over to Through the Craft Room Door's challenge Blog to be inspired by our talented design team. 

Hope you will join us this week.

Study To You Are Nutty

613 Avenue Create has another Anything Goes Challenge this month and the optional twist is School Days

I used this image from The Paper Shelter called Back to School to create my canvas. 

 My canvas was painted with two blue acrylic paints then the dots were created with a stencil and white acrylic paint. 

The back to school image, bus and pencils were coloured with Copic markers. 
The number stamp is an old Ranger stamp/Dylusions from my stash. 
I added wooden letter, sentiments,and paper layers were added to complete the Back to School collage.
