Mid Month Inspiration - July 20

Hello their my lovelies,

Wow, how quickly is time flying?  We are more than half way to Christmas....time to start on the cards me thinks but for now, I will move on to the subject in hand which is some Mid Month Inspiration for out July challenge over at Stamping Sensations.  Here's the card that I've made:

As our theme this month is 'All Creatures Great And Small'  I've used a fabulous Owl stamp by 'Crafty Individuals.'  I stamped him using Nocturn VersaFine ink and then coloured my background using my Distress Inks that I applied with my Ink Dusters.  I made the mountains using a stencil and then I added some foliage at the base to add some interest.  The handsome Owl was coloured with Distress Inks.

Don't forget that we are very generously sponsored this month by Jean and Malcolm from: 

Crafty Individuals 

who are offering a £25 voucher to spend at their online store.

I hope to be back with you all soon but until then, take care and be happy x

I love this gorgeous card Sandra. The sky is so beautiful and the eyes are piercing, he's obviously seen something off in the distance.

You do an amazing job with this owl stamp, Sandra. The background is stunning but it's the colouring of the owl that makes it so realistic. I know it's a gorgeous stamp but I don't think anyone does it justice like you do!
