Hoot Hoot, sketch challenge time!

It's Dreamweaver Thursday and I have a fantastic sample for you!.. This week we were supposed to use the following sketch created by Terrece: 


Here is my version of the sketch.  Done with the new LL 3013 Owl Pair stencil and some Faux Cloisonne!




We received in these new dry paints at the store, InkaGold by Viva.  They are really rich and highly pigmented colors.  They all have a shimmer to them too.  So I used those to color in my stencil area first and color the owls.  Then I let dry.  Once dry, I rewet to add embossing powder and create the faux cloisonne look!  The neat thing about the Viva inks, when heat, they bubble up into the embossing powder and create a really neat look!

I hope you are inspired to use this sketch and perhaps try your hand at some faux cloisonne!

A card after my own heart. Love those little owls. Those new inks really punched up the intensity of color. I'm going to have to look for them. Really pretty.
