Moon Owl

Morning my crafting friends, so good of you to join me today, I really do appreciate your visits and if you have a blog of your own then please do leave the link and I can return the favour. I love looking at all your creativity and inspiration, gosh sometimes I need it lol!

Today's post is a simple one, I recently bought two new stamps as I loved the artistic design, they are both by the same wonderful artist Norma J Burnell, they are available at    I shall show the other one on Tuesday.

I wanted a quick and simple card so I just stamped the image on the right side of the card, coloured it in with Promarkers and matted and layered it with some Periwinkle card then stamped a sentiment at the bottom as seen.

I have to say the pictures do not show it up very well as the feathers down the Owls head and chest and also the feathers below the Orange and Green ones on his back are actually Teal colour not Green!!!

I added a little Glaze on his eye and beak to make them shine but the picture does not pick this up!

Items Used:

Basic White 6"X 6" card
Sweet Pea Stamps Norma J Burnell's Moon Owl
Creative Expressions Foundation Card Periwinkle
Sheena Douglass Stamping White Card
Justrite large fancy Sentiments
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo
