Tawny Owl

Here's my latest stamp crush!  It's by Indigo Blu and is mahoosive and great fun to colour, which I've done with my usual Promarkers, adding highlights to the eyes and beak with Anita's 3D Gloss.  After colouring, I went in with Distress Ink in Old paper, Antique Linen and Pumice Stone.  I printed off a photo of a tawny owl to help me get the colours right and I have to say that I'm quite pleased with the result.
The papers are Papermania Capsule Collection in Lincoln Linen, teamed with kraft and dark brown cardstock.
The leaves were made with a Cuttlebug die and I finished off with some knotted raffia and Card Candi.
The card is for my brother-in-law who loves clean lines so I had to resist the urge to get busy with my distressing tool round the edges!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Craft - tweet tweets
Dream Valley - #35 - things with wings
One Stop Craft - #189 - coffee and cream
Papertake - anything goes with option of highlighting (I used 3D Gloss)
Sassy Cheryl's - #122 - anything goes
