Always Love You

Today's creation incorporates three Splitcoast challenge! The Technique Challenge was to use layered scallops. The CAS Challenge had a Pinterest inspiration photo, and Lydia's HYCCT Challenge was to be inspired by A Walk in the Woods.
I used the adorable Autumn Owls die and stamp set by The Stamps of Life with Stephanie Barnard. I LOVE how there are dies for each stamp in the set!
I love scallops and since my owl has them on his tummy, he came to mind when I saw Joan's fun Technique challenge. I layered two different patterns from my designer paper choices - both chosen using the Pinterest photo provided in the CAS Challenge.
Lydia's HYCCT1231 Challenge: A Walk in the Woods, was to inspire us with something from nature. We have lots of turkeys in our neighborhood, but I have to travel a little to see an owl. :)

If you have not yet tried Stephanie's Premium Inks, I URGE you to get some ASAP. As she tells in her video, there is a smooth stamping surface on the ink, so what you get is a clean, solid image, rather than the pattern on the ink pad (linen, or criss cross or whatever). I absolutely LOVE these inks - and had no idea there was such a difference from what I had been using. I LOVE them!

Thanks for taking a peek!  

On a fun note, my S'Mores project won Top Five at Cupcake Inspirations~!
