Enjoy the Hop. Come on back tomorrow for more creative fun!!
I love the little owl in this set. I stamped him twice. Once on the polka dotted dp and once on cream colored cardstock. I watercolored him. I added some extra highlights in his eyes with acrylic paint. I stepped out of my usual comfort zone by adding glitter to his wings and chest. This whole tag was out of my comfort zone because of the  colors. I'm not much of a pink fan, but I love how this tag turned out .

 I added quilled roses and pink, white and brown ribbons to the tag. I also added little dots of white acrylic paint to the polkadoted dp.


  1. So sweet MariLynn - love this wee owl and how you have used it.

  2. Lovely tag - pretty and unusual owl

  3. Marilynn, I totally understand about going out of comfort zone and at first I wasn't sure if I liked it but when I saw the whole tag .......... it works! good to go astray sometimes.
