Jane's Doodle Owl Watercolored ala Jennifer McGuire :)

Hi there!

On the 4th of July my local scrapbook/stamp store had a one day sale. Since we were in town I took some time to check it out. As I wandered the aisles I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked down toward the bottom of the section for owl stamps and goodies and saw the very same Jane's Doodle stamp set Jennifer McGuire used in her video on watercoloring and stamping here. That was last August and I've never quite been able to get that card out of my mind. I never expected to see it in this store! Lucky day for me!

Of course, when I got home I wanted to play with it, but had to wait. It was a holiday after all. :)

So, I got to work on it Sunday. Yes, this is a shameless CASE of Jennifer's card. I even used some Peerless watercolors. Not the ones she did as I don't have the same set, but who I liked the colors I had. I even added Perfect Pearls to get the shimmer. I took my time and let it dry over night. Then with bated breath, I cut through one wing. Ohhhh that hurt just a bit. In the end though, I did it because I just adored the card Jennifer had made. 

Here's how mine came out:

Tried to angle so you can see the shimmer.

He's a cutie!
(Feel free to click on any photo to enlarge it).
I even added Perfect Pearls to the background color. It's quite shimmery and I like it! 

Big smiles at how this one came out. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I hope you are having a happy day.

Well, talk about a finely-feathered, shimmery and glitz owl, Jeanne! He is absolutely marvelous! Isn't it great when something 'unexpectedly' marvelous comes under your radar, like this Jane Doodle set...and being on sale is an added bonus! Your card truly is delightful; inspired by Jennifer, but infused with YOUR special touches.
Now, important news: head over to STAMPKorations immediately, as you're one of Shery's winners! Yayyyy...so excited for you! Shopping spree on your agenda!
