3 Little Owls

Hello everyone, hope you've all been having a good week. I'm very excited as tomorrow I'm going to the Make It show at Farnborough for the first time with some of my crafty friends.
I'm here now with a card I made from the pieces of my demo at the class I held on Monday which I finally managed to put together.
I couldn't resist this stamp when I saw it as the little owls are so adorable. The stamp is by Blue Moon and I stamped it with Memento black ink and then coloured the images with Promarkers in Satin, Cinnamon, Tan, Terracotta and Dark Brown. I smudged Crushed Olive Distress ink round the edges.
The background was made by partially embossing a square of white card with the Cuttlebug leafy branch folder. I then sponged on Crushed Olive ink and swiped it over the raised areas for a stronger contrast. I stamped a Hero Arts stitched leaf design in Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. I then pierced holes all around the edges and added faux stitching with a brown fine liner.
I assembled the card with a piece of stitched braid and a greeting - the scalloped frame is by Polka Doodles and the text is Hobby Art.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Allsorts - Week 91 Inspired By Nature
I Love Promarkers - Stitching

Thanks for looking,
Fliss x
