Looking through a box of stamps for some inspiration I came across the set which included this quirky owl. I seem to remember that at the time this was a definite 'must have' and to my shame it has probably languished out of sight for longer than I'd like to admit. However I stamped and coloured this one and I must say I was a bit disappointed that the outline is rather thick but nothing to be done about that although I do wish it had been a much finer line. Nevertheless I did enjoy colouring it to while away part of a hot afternoon. Coloured with pencils and then trimmed into a rectangle - had intended using a shaped die but couldn't find one of suitable shape and/or size. When putting the card together I thought it just needed an extra something so I die cut two feathers and added them along with a sentiment from a different stamp set.
Thankfully it seems to be rather cooler today after the wet day we had yesterday - gardens were badly in need of some rain even if it does make the grass grow!!
