Twit Twooooo (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with my first sample created using this month's new stamps. As always the stamps are a real joy to work with. This morning's card features some of the stamps from Owl Edges.

This was a very quick card to make using white cardstock and a Vintage Photo Inkpad. I began by lightly dusting some ink over the top half of the card with a stencil brush. Then I masked the moon and tore a paper mask for the hills and dusted more ink around the moon. I carried on creating the background by moving the paper mask down and dusting ink over to create the hills.

Next I stamped the branch and owl and used a water brush with a little more ink to colour the image. I stamped the bullrushed at the bottom of the card using first and second generation stamping. Next I distressed the edges with a craft knife and applied some more ink using an ink blending tool. 

To finish off I've added some twine and a little owl charm.
My teamies have created some stunning projects with this month's new stamps so don't forget to keep checking back for more inspiration.
