IO Challenge- Say it Big

Sometimes you see a stamp that just speaks to you.  I knew that the Quirky Loves Crazy stamp (G17071) would be perfect to use on cards for my friends.  I think we actually take pride in being a little quirky and crazy.

To make the card, I started with watercolor paper, wet it, and then painted it with Peerless watercolors.  I then added the owls, which were also colored with watercolor paint.  The owls are actually one stamp called Owl on Head (D7801).  To me, it looks like one is doing a little tap dance on top of another tap dancing owl.  I might be reading too much into the stamp, but that is what I see.  :)

IO Challenge- Fall Colors

Is it just me, or is summer just zipping by?  It is already time to start thinking about fall and all the gorgeous fall colors.

For my card, I wanted to play with the new Fall Pumpkin image (E16123).  It just lends itself to using the orange, gold, and olive colors I wanted.  I created my own background with the Starburst Cover a Card (CC221).  I embossed it in gold powder and then colored it with an assortment of Distress Markers.  I then used the same markers to color my pumpkin.  To finish the card, I used the Fall Blessings (C19008) saying.
