Whimsy Stamps - August Rubber Stamp release

Happy Tuesday and thanks for visiting!

Today is day two of  the Whimsy Stamps August Rubber stamps and Die release sneak peeks. All stamps and dies will officially be available for purchase tomorrow at the Whimsy Shop.
We are holding another fun blog hop today. Be sure to hop along and leave comments on each blog for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes. The participating designer's blogs are listed below.

For today's project I used the stamp "Autumn Owl" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. 

I am just in love with watercolor backgrounds at the moment and so I decided to create a watercolor wash background for today's card. I used a mix blues, purples and browns. Before I added the colors I masked off a moon shape. 
The owl image was stamped twice, once onto my background, and then again onto copic blending card. I colored the wood post and owl using copics, and then I extended the wire fence by using a micron pen.

Product list:
Autumn Owl (avail. tomorrow - 8/6) , Autumn letter seals (both whimsy stamps)
bat from Halloween dies set (avail. tomorrow - 8/6), contest ribbon die set  (both whimsy stamps)
Grumbacher deluxe watercolors
