Best Wishes and Your're the Best

 Here are two cards that I have made using a Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Love Barn Owl".  I started off with painting over the image with Pebeo drawing gum to mask off the owl and greenery.

I then scribbled various Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir Aqua pens onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and then swooshed the card into the ink/water.  Once dry I rubbed off the drawing um which came off easily.  A previous one I had when you rubbed it rubbed holes in your card.

I then coloured the image in with my Promarkers.

For the red card I have used various red papers from my stash, added a Craftwork Cards sentiment  and some die-cut feathers.

For the purple card I used papers from my stash that have been designed by my friend Lozzy.  I finished the card off with a Cherry Lynn border (I haven't used this for ages and ages as no matter how many times I put it through my Grand Calibur it would never cut properly.  One pass through my Gemini and all the bits fell out!!), Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some die-cut feathers.
Promarkers used:

Red card - Khaki, Cocoa, pastel Beige, Saffron, Vanilla, Bright Green and Meadow Green and Burnt Sienna
Purple card - Khaki, Sandstone, Tan, Pastel Yellow, Raw Sienna, Bright Green, Meadow Green.

I am entering these two cards into the following challenges:

Great coloring of your background. We're so blessed that you joined us with your wonderful art last Challenge. We would like to invite you to link with us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving some inspiration from the Word of God in John 6:35, "Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."...Have a wonderful and blessed week.
