Mondays with The Project Bin ~ Woo to the Hoo!

Whoooooo loves the "New Leaf" stamp set from The Project Bin?
I'll owl-ways love it!

Happy Monday!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend ~
Ours was SO busy - I was running circles around myself :)

Today's card from The Project Bin was such fun to create!
I was able to watercolor AND stamp -  a win/win!
I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Japanese Watercolors to create the base.
These are solid-pigment pan watercolors and just the yummiest!
They were a gift from my precious daughter, Victoria,
and I just treasure them ♥

 Since the card has such a bold and multi-colored background, 
I decided to just stamp right on the dried water-colored piece and leave it as is
without a lot of layers or extras other than a few enamel dots.

After stamping out the cute little owl onto the branch,
I had a vision of how bats hang upside on the branches.
Since the sentiment is so whimsical, 
 I decided to have a little fun with an owl, too.
What a hoot!
Here's the stamp set I used ↑

You can see more inspiration from The Project Bin at the blog,
as well as the New Leaf stamp set and more in the shop.
If you look beflow the stamp set, it will take you to the gallery
where you can see many cards with this same stamp.
 Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
