CTMH August SOTM Blog Hop

Yep, it's that time of the month again.  
Time to see what creations me and my fellow Close to my Heart consultants have dreamed  up using the August SOTM (available only for the month of August and only through myself or your local CTMH Consultant)
Just before me,  was the talented Tina 

I must be honest the "owls" in this stamp set did nothing for me.  However, I loved the rest of the set.  So I put on my thinking cap and this is what I came up with
This was okay, but not really what I wanted.

So, here's my second attempt
Now, for me, this is more like it.
The first technique that made this candy box work.....stamp the pumpkins on colored cardstock. first choice is to always stamp my image on daisy white or colonial white cardstock.
But this doesn't have to be the case.

I cut the container from our new paper fundamentals collection (Z2033)
then sponged the edges with cocoa ink to add some dimension,

I cut the base of the owl from cashmere cardstock and the "wings" from cocoa.

All in all, I think it turned out quite nicely.

Now, hop over to
