I needed some breakout creative time away from meeting so card requests and family birthdays so I decided I would have a play with some stamps I have recently bought but not had a chance to "play" with. My first choice was Orla the Owl by Hobby Art Stamps this company has some fantastic designers and the design team is fantastic as you will see from the link above.
I have no shame in admitting that I tried to recreate one of the makes on their gallery for this stamp (the above link is for the gallery). I am very proud of my finished picture which now takes pride of place on my notice board at work and it I have received many compliments.
So here is my version. I covered the moon in Cosmic Shimmer drawing ink which when the light catches it and it actually looks as though it is glowing. The stars were made by splashing drawing gum on the card before starting to ink up with lots of different blue and grey distress inks. I also used the drawing gum to cover Orla so I could stamp the moon behind her. The watercolour pencils used to colour were Derwent Inktense and the silhouettes of foliage were from the same stamp set as Orla.
