SP6 - Single Layer Card



Help, I think I have forgotten how to make a basic card! For this one I used one of my all time fave stamps, my lovely owl from LaBlanche. The moon in the background has been stamped with resist ink, and then I distressed the card with TH Inks in marigold, brushed corduroy, ancient linen and Adirondack espresso. Tried to create a murky, misty night. The owl has been stamped in Archival black and clear embossed before brushing with perfect pearls in interference blue and gold and embossing again, to bring out colours in the feathers. The eyes have been dotted with stickles in cinnamon. Hand-doodled a leafy branch in black and gold. It was, as usual, fun to make, and has effectively kept me from doing the housework up till now - but now I can't avoid it any longer....help!
Thanks for looking and have a good day!
