Thinking of you!

Good Morning Crafty Friends, 

Today I am off to Kath's not sure what we will be creating with today but looking forward to getting messy and mucky paws.  Of course we don't just craft we also have a good natter over coffee, no cakes as we are on a diet! 

Today sharing the last of the cards I made at last month's workshop with Maria Simms.
She takes the workshop in Preston and if you are interested please message her on Facebook.

Here is a list of the stamps we used:

I used Distress Ink, squeezed marmalade, evergreen bough and vintage photo. I masked the owl and created the background.
I coloured the owl with Faber Castel pencils

I finished it off at home by adding the sentiment and matting it onto white card distressing the edges in evergreen bough.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

AAA Cards #97 - Masking
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge #8 - Anything Goes
Allsorts #429 - Forest Friends

Many thanks for visiting today
Happy Crafting!
