I created this lovely by stamping the owl onto card stock with archival black and coloring it in using a combo of distress stain (fired brick) and distress ink pad (barn door)
I also used my distress marker on the leaves and blended them with the blender tool. I added gems to the owls eyes.
I colored the background with distress stains and stamped a Tim Holtz music sheet to layer it a little. I then dotted that with a few other colors of stains to the right hand side of my card. For the flower I used a big punch to cut the Glassine backing flower, for the other flower I used Tim's tattered floral strip die. I cut it out of cardstock and then used distress stain in mustard seed to stain it yellow.
For the ribbon, I used Pine Needles distress stain to make it a green color and added the chotski pin and feather charm. The word "Peace" is from Tim's Chit-Chat sticker pack.
I am also entering this project in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week. The challenge was anything goes, so you could enter any project. I really like these challenges they definitely keep me and my art moving and Simon Says Stamp is so generous with their 50.00 prize to one lucky winner.
