Hi there. This card was made using a NBUS (never used before) Crafty Individuals Stamp called Owl on Branch with Berries and the background was coloured using Brushos. I stamped the owl with Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink and coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils.
I started by placing some Ultramarine Blue and some Leaf Green Brushos on to my glass mat, roughly where I wanted them to be and spritzed with water. I then laid the card over it and ended up with the basic background. I then painted with them using a waterbrush and finished the scene with the distant hills in Purple and the sun using Yellow, and I did darken it with a bit of yellow Inktense Pencil at the end as I thought it looked too pale.
I then stamped the owl onto the background scene using the Vintage Sepia Ink and coloured just the branch, and extended it a bit to take it off the edge, using the Inktense Pencils, and then again onto another piece of the glossy card and coloured, and fussy cut out just the bird and added it over the top of the original to give it more dimension. I finished by adding a sentiment using the Vintage Sepia Ink and whilst wet heat set it using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
Thank you for visiting me here today and I will be back again soon.
