The challenge this week....Doodling....OMG, i'm no good at this but i've had a go anyway!!
I took a plain white 148mm square card and just started to 'squiggle' (technical term!!) on it with my brown zig pen. I had the idea that i wanted to create some sort of frame (?) and actually that's what i ended up with :)
I used half a cotton wool ball and chalked all around the edges with pink, and then added some yummy papers from another of my new Basic Grey 6 x 6 pads 'Sultry'. I stamped the Hero Arts branch with Adirondack 'Espresso' directly onto the DP, and my little Stamps Away owl was stamped once onto the same DP and again onto some plain pink. This allowed me to do a little bit of paper piecing to get the effect i wanted!

The sentiment is HOTP, cut out with circle punch and placed on top of my Prima hydrangea, and my little owl is raised on foam pads, to perch on her branch!! Don't look too closely... i think i cut off one of her toes!!!! Thanks for popping in today... Enjoy Bank Holiday Monday :)
