Inkspirational Challenge 68 - Owls Photo.


Here's my DT card for the latest Inkspirational challenge, and here's the photo:

So I didn't go for a highly original interpretation but I like owls! Although the card is overwhelmingly orange, I used a range of distress inks on it.  The owl and branch were cut on my electronic die cutter and I stamped flowers and leaves by Paper Artsy.  The circular shape card and the circular flowers are supposed to reflect the crocheted circles on the owls.

I hope you will come over to Inkspirational  and join in. We have a wonderful Guest Designer, Maura  and great inspiration from the rest of the DT, so I'll see you there.

I'd like to enter:
