Twit Twoooooooo from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, have you seen this months fabulous new releases from Chocolate Baroque? There are some gorgeous new 'edge' stamps called Exquisite Edges and Owl Edges as well as two A5 clear Christmas sets (you can find them all here). This morning's card features some of the stamps from Owl Edges. We're all sooooooo excited as Chocolate Baroque stamps are going to be on TV! Lesley will be demonstrating some fabulous stamp on The Craft Channel on Monday 5th October at 10am and 6pm so that will be well worth a watch!

This was a very quick card to make using white cardstock and a Vintage Photo Inkpad. I began by lightly dusting some ink over the top half of the card with a stencil brush. Then I masked the moon and tore a paper mask for the hills and dusted more ink around the moon. I carried on creating the background by moving the paper mask down and dusting ink over to create the hills.

Next I stamped the branch and owl and used a water brush with a little more ink to colour the image. I stamped the bullrushed at the bottom of the card using first and second generation stamping. Next I distressed the edges with a craft knife and applied some more ink using an ink blending tool. 

To finish off I've added some twine and a little owl charm.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
