Oliver The Owl...

What a lovely day it's been here today. I have done the grocery shop, been my eldest son's taxi service (as he has been to visit some friends), and also managed to squeeze in a card for the I Love Promarkers challenge.
This week is a recipe; 2 different papers, 3 buttons and 1 ribbon.
I will also enter it into:
My Time To Craft (my second entry) for 'wild thing'
I have used this lovely Oliver image, a super cute owl from The DigiStamp Boutique's Offer Of The Month.

I have used a 6x6 scalloped card blank.
I have used 2 different papers from Papermania 'Rose Garden'. The bottom one I have distressed and inked edges with my sandstone Promarker.
The other papers are mounted onto textured kraft card.
The Promarkers I used for the image are;
Sandstone, caramel, cinnamon, tan, henna, ivory, pear green, moss & cool grey 5 (for shadowed areas of the branch. I pricked around the edges of the image to add detail.
I have also used;
Woodware Jane's script stamps,
buttons,
twine,
acrylic dew drops,
organza ribbon.


Well I am off to bath the little ones now, they have been playing in the garden, but hopefully I will have some time to blog hop later.


Thanks for looking!
