Night Owl

I am not usually a 'night owl' but couldn't resist this one.

You know how it is - you go to an online site to buy one thing in particular, then when you get to checkout it says - if you spend x more you get free postage. So I end up getting little 'x's and then wonder what I am going to make with them



So today I am looking through my drawer of 'extra' stamps - which took me over the free postage threshold and trying to ease my guilty conscience by using them.

I love the latest grungy looking Tim Holtz sentiments stamps, so used one of those, with the owl, and created a night scene by using a CB embossing plate, colouring it, then flattening it - to create the shadowy leaves, then embossing it again to create the raised leaves.

It's just a bit of fun - not a work of art. After all the 'serious' stuff of joining in the Cornish Heritage Farm challenges which I did enjoy - I have decided a bit of messing about and experimenting time is called for.

This is great! I love the way you've used the CB leaves folder for the background - very clever. I haven't used mine much. I'll now go and look at it in a new light (or dark!).
