What a Hoot

I love these different owl stamps I have collected over time and thought that they would work well for the MMM challenge of Nature. To create this I first stamped the moon on the background and then added several differnt chalk eye colours until I had something approaching a smoky moody atmosphere. I drew the branches and cut them out layering them on top. The butterflies and owls were then stamped, they are different stamps from both Stamps Away and Basic Grey - Grow Your Own Garden.

I added punched leaves to add a bit of texture and form to the piece.
Glossy accents were added to the nest,owls eyes and butterflies to add a touch of sparkle!
I hope you like it.
