You're Awesome!: Take Four

Hello again! I hope you all had the most fabulous holidays! I was completely spoiled this year and got some amazing goodies to add to my craft room (I'm completely giddy with joy!!!!).   A Big Shot, a lamp for my workstation, and a new set of Prismacolor pencils are just a sample of the glorious fun my hubby got me this year. I haven't had the chance to play with my new toys yet but I do have another "You're Awesome!" card to share with you today.  This is also my entry in this week's Friends With Flair challenge by Unity.  

For the fourth card using the custom sentiment my husband requested for cards for his co-workers I decided to use some Distress Inks and Markers to watercolor this beyond adorable image from the November Kit of the Month from Unity. I am pretty much obsessed with owls so this guy is going to be a favorite. 

To add a little something special I stamped the image in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in chestnut Zing embossing powder.  I found a cute little mushroom in another Unity kit I had to add to the sentiment inside and tie it to the toadstool on the front.  A few sequins and some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen finish off the project.

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave me a comment and let me know what fabulous fun you got for the holidays!  Check back soon for the final AWESOME card, as well!  Happy holidays and a happy new year to you and yours!!!!

    1. Thank you! This image really lends itself to those colors. But you really can't go wrong with a Unity stamp no matter how you color it :)
