Etsy Inspired Challenge #76

It is time for another Etsy Inspired challenge. This week's inspiration is from the Enchanted Beehive shop. I have no idea how they create these works of art with soap, but they are pretty cool. Here's my favorite which I also used for my inspiration:

It was a perfect time to break out my Hambly overlays again for this awesome owl rub-on.
I love that owl, and honestly I'm not really an owl person. This one is just extra cute!


Patterned Paper: Viola Botanique (American Crafts)
Rub-on: Out on a Limb (Hambly Studios)
Ribbon: Brown Satin, Twine (May Arts)
Letters: Subway Thickers (American Crafts)


You'll have to check out the rest of her shop for even more inspiration. And this week's sponsor is Doodle Palace! The Enchanted Beehive will also be giving away an item from their shop to one winner. 

And check out these super talented girls for even more inspiration:
