Alpha Challenge 'W'

There is a twist with the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn this fortnight.  The letter is 'W' and we have to include circles in the background.  I have left my entry until the last minute yet again and had to rush - I do it every time!


The owl is from Inkadinkado Patterned Birds and Bugs and is stamped in Black Versafine and coloured with coloured pencils.  The circles are stamped with Spice Big and Juicy using stamps from the Creative Expressions Button Floral stamp plate.  The moon is achieved by lightly brayering with Stonewashed Adirondack using a punched circle for a mask and the letters for 'WISE' and the crown are die cut from a Cuttlebug alphabet set.  The writing is with a glaze pen cause its the only brown pen I had!  Thank you for visiting me and please pop over to The Craft Barn to take a look at the other entries and the DT work.  I hope I haven't forgotten anything, This post is a bit rushed I am afraid.  Take care. Christine xx

Very imaginative and very, well, "crafty, Chris!" I love how you used the perfect owl for "wise" and wrote all the cinnamons around the circles!!
