Creating A Scene

Monday is here yet again folks and January seems to be flying by! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to fit in a bit of crafting.
We have a new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday and continuing with our monthly theme of Nature, this week would like to see you Create A Scene.
I have to admit I struggled with this one a little as I couldn't find my Artistic Outpost Serenity set which would have been perfect for this one (note to self - craft room tidy up necessary!) and had to improvise.


I decided to use this gorgeous sleepy owl stamp by Blue Moon which I love as those little cuties look so sweet and fluffy. I stamped them with VersaFine Vintage sepia ink and coloured them with various brown Promarkers. I then cut out the panel with a nestabilities die and inked the edges with Crushed Olive Distress ink.
I made a background with a piece of pale green textured look paper which I first stamped with a brick wall stamp using Stazon Dove Grey ink then sponged with Frayed Burlap and Wild Honey Distress inks. I sponged the top half with Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky.
I stamped fern sprays from the Penny Black Enjoy Life clear stamp set with VersaFine Olympia Green and Spanish Moss inks and assembled the card as you see.

The Design Team have come up with the most fabulous scenes so do hop over for a look and be inspired.

Challenges for my card:
Craft A Scene - Anything Goes but Create A Scene
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Birds Of A Feather

Have a great week,
Fliss xx

A Gorgeous card, Fliss! Reminds me of a children's picture book called owl babies where three fluffy young owls sit and worry where their mum has gone!
