Owl - Brenda's Card (Floral Fantasies)

I follow a lovely lady named Brenda and her blog Floral Fantasies .  Brenda is celebrating her 4th year blogaversary plus the fact she is coming close to 4000 followers.  Imagine having that many followers.....yes, Brenda is a busy lady and always has at least one card a day to share and they are always beautiful.

Now Brenda is offering a prize in honour of this celebration and part of the entry criteria is to create something based on Brenda's blog, either her header, her cards, her techniques, her dogs.  I have always admired her brayered scenes that she creates and was determined that this year I would have a try.  What better time than now.

So I have used white gloss card and grabbed my brayer that I think has only ever been used once before years ago.  I wanted to create an evening sky for this beautiful 3D Die Cut Owl from Blue Edge Crafts so I had to use my Stampin Up inkspots.  Not the best thing for brayering but I got there in the end.  I used Bashful Blue, Lavender Lace and Perfect Plum I used a circle to mask for the moon.  Then added some vine stamped images to help create the scene.  Finished with the tiny gold star stickers.  Then layered the scene up on black and lavender linen textured card stock.

Closes 8th April
