Penny Black and More - Midway Reminder

Hello everyone, it's time already for the October Midway reminder post at Penny Black and More. I can't believe we're already over halfway through the month!!! Not sure I am ready yet for the cold part of Fall.

Our theme this month is "Close to Nature", a really fun theme I think and lots of stamp choices here too. I decided to use the stamp set "Woodland  Friends" by Penny Black. As usual, when using watercolor methods I heat embossed the image and sentiment before coloring. 
A music note background (by Hero Arts) was used randomly on the image panel and I flicked some ink splatters onto the background as well using diluted ink from the Clean Color brush pens.  The sentiment is from an older set by Whimsy Stamps.

Check out these fabulous prizes we're giving away this month:
3 separate stamp prizes from Penny Black,
a ribbon prize package by Crafty Ribbons


 and a set of dies by Sizzix.

Our rules are simple - mainly the focal point has to be stamped (any stamp company) - this means it can't be a digi, stencil, die-cut etc. The only exception are Penny Black stickeroos, and don't forget 3 entries per person. Hope you can come join us if you haven't already or if you'd like to enter again!

Have a great day!!
