The theme over at Tag Tuesday this week is Owls. I found this digi owl here on this lovely site that has an abundance of downloads that are all free for you to use. The background is a piece of old white sheeting which I dyed purple using the juice from a bowl of blackberries which just happened to be handy! It wasn't quite dark enough so I added chalks in purple, blue and black, distress ink pads in blue and brown to get the sort of sky an owl would be happy to fly around in!! I attached to cardboard (from my supply of cat food boxes) and frayed all round the edges. The stamp is from Crafty Individuals which I stamped direct onto the material using a black stazon ink pad. I printed the owl and coloured the branch with promarkers and black chalk and cut him out. Then I just sort of went to town adding bits and bobs that were on my desk. The frame is cut from a window envelope that had come in the post.(The acetate dosen't show up in the photo but using the flash on the camera made it glare) I cut free hand to give a random feel to it. Chain is part of an old necklace, buttons found in a pot and the purple threads were left over from attaching them to the tag. Was going to throw them in the bin but then thought why not so stuck them under the button just for you Sherry as I know you love to see a bit of thread hanging off.
As I have used loads of snippets up am scurrying over to the snippets playground #38.
