born in a barn?

Hello my lovelies - thanks so much for all your comments on yesterdays post and shows - I will put the bowl on a post soon - it certainly seemed popular!

Last Saturday I managed to get to the show at Leigh and bought myself a few new stamps - like I need any! Anyway, here's what I have made with the Barnowl set from HobbyArt.

He really is a super image - the grasses all came with him and I masked him before stamping them.  I had also masked the moon and completed the background using stencil brushes at this point! The final thing I did was the painting which I did using distress inks as water colours, and last of all stamp the verse from Alison Bomber at paperartsy.

Here's a closer look - such a fine owl!.

I should like to enter this into sirstampalotchallenge march-challenge.

Here are my goodies from Leigh - I have used the JOFY stamps already too - but the Kay Carley stencil hasn't been used yet - nor the lovely zini!!!

Hope you are having a good day - I am off out for a run (more of a shuffle actually) but its all good!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
