Give a Hoot! Color Throw Down Challenge

This is a new challenge blog that I decided to play along with this week.   It is call the
Color Throw Down Challenge.        In this challenge, they provide a photo with some colors.   See below for this week challenge.    I took some Bristol Smooth card stock and sponged some Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress ink on the card stock and then spritzed with some water to get the water drops on the card.   It was trimmed down with MFT Wonky Stitches Rectangle stax.    I used a double stitched circle die from Lil' Inker and cut a circle thru the panel and card base layer.    To add the cream to my card, I colored this owl image from a Paper Smooches set called Chubbie Chums and cut out with the coordinating die.   I also cut another owl and created a spinner in the middle of the panel circle.    I added some wooden veneer starts from Studio Calico.    The sentiment is from Chubbie Chums and it was placed on a white tag cut from MFT die and added a jute bow.

Stamps:  Paper Smooches Chubbie Chums
Inks: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, Distress: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint
Papers: Bristol Smooth, MFT Smooth White, Copic Xpress it, Recollections white card base
Tools: Thread, Jute, Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars, MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stax, MFT Tag Talk, Lil Inker Double Stitched Circles, Copics
