Twit Twoo!

Hi everyone,

I'm back after a short absence, the builders are back.  More work, but nothing major this time, all the same I find it hard to concentrate or in fact get anything done when they are here!

Today I have a card that I have made to enter into the Sketch N Stash 88 challenge.

For this card I took one of my A5 white hammered card blanks and cut it down to make a square card blank {old stash}.  I have then taken a piece of Papertrey Ink 'Perfect Match' cardstock in Ocean Tides and cut a square slightly smaller than my card blank, I have then layered onto this a piece of My Mind's Eye paper from the 'True Blue' collection {new stash}.  For the border on the left I have used more Papertrey Ink Ocean Tides and layered over this with another piece of My Mind's Eye paper from the same collection.  The image is Whimsey Stamps ~ 'Whimsey Owl' (the link takes you to a Digi Image version) and he was stamped onto a piece of Craftwork Cards 'Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock' with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad, coloured in using Copics and then run through my Grand Calibur with a Netabillities circle die.  The image was then mounted onto a mat cut from the Papertrey Ink Ocean Tides cardstock.  To finish I have used a scrap of ribbon {old stash} from my ribbon scraps box (there was literally only just enough to tuck under the edges) a Prima flower and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards which has been colour tinted with VersaMagic ink in 'Oasis Green' to tone with the colours of the rest of the card and finally some Jose Rose nail heads - whew!!

Thank you for visiting and for any of your lovely comments ~ always welcome.
