Norma J Burnell Fairy Tangles Moon Owl Card

Morning Peeps! 

Hope you're all having a good and crafty week? 

Don't forget to check out my £50 Candy if you haven't done so already.
Good luck!

I have a feeling (fingers crossed) that the Postie might be bringing me a very special delivery today in the shape of some of the most gorgeous rubber stamps you will ever see.  I'm waiting in all day as I really do think today is the day.  If they do come, you'll be able to find them here in my shop.
The first batch consists of 6 different images (all stunning) but more are on order and I'm hoping to have many more in the months to come.

Update:  Postie's been and the stamps are in the shop!
Sweet Pea Stamps 

Here is the card I have made using Norma J Burnell's Moon Owl 




I absolutely adore this beautiful Moon Owl!  He's fabulous as he can be used for cards for the blokies as well as the laydeez AND kids.  Absolutely gorgeous.  

Sorry...have such a problem getting greens to look right in photos...but I've tried and this is close.
 
I coloured him (on watercolour card) using the following Promarkers:

Ivory, Satin, Oatmeal, Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Walnut, Peach,
 Pastel Beige, Khaki, Marsh Green and Olive Green.

The super dooper (and they really are stunners) papers are from the First Edition Desert Blooms 6x6 Paper Pad which is now an equal favourite with the New Blooms pad (also in the shop).

To create this card I have also used the following products which are all from
 Scribble and Scrap Crafts

The Hobby House Brads and Pearls  (I coloured the pearls using a Khaki Promarker)
Little White Flower Pack
Lillibet Wooden Sentiments

The matting card is ancient stash and I used a Spellbinders die to cut the partial circle I have used as an embellie.  

The inside is decorated to match.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
