Evening all. I thought I'd sit and write this whilst dinner is cooking. We're having lasagne tonight, one of my faves. Are you having anything nice?

Today's card uses pretty similar colours to the last card I blogged but they look very different on kraft card to they did on white.

I started off by inking though the stencil using green and orange shades of Distress Ink. Then I flicked on some water and dried it off with a paper towel to add a bit of interest.

It still looked a bit boring so I decided to cut it into sections (after this photo was taken I also trimmed the border off the central square). I inked the edges and added a thin dark brown mat around the outside sections using a Perfect Layers ruler.

I then stamped the owl image in brown Archival ink and took away some colour on their faces with a wet paint brush and paper towel.

I stuck them all down leaving an even gap in-between and added a final mat and layer to finish it off.

Well, I think it's nearly time to put the garlic bread in. I'll see you all again tomorrow with my samples from this month's show; there's one stamp that Maya and I are particularly fond of.
