Silhouettes at Sunset......

Good morning everyone Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it is very chilly here this morning hope it warms up soon!! I have had some new Stamps sitting waiting to be inked and so last night I went to play in my little crafty room and got inky.........fabulous.  The Stamps are from A Little Bit Scenic Range by Sheena Douglas I fell in love with these sets because they are Silhouettes and are brilliant with inky backgrounds. Sets I used are Silhouette Grasses and Highlands Silhouette 
  Don't you just love this owl... I do............. background was made with Distress Inks scattered straw, dusty concorde, faded jeans, stamped over in black soot and embossed with black embossing powder.  The edges were distressed with my scissors as I couldn't find my distressing tool...........it is buried under the crafty stash on my desk .......somewhere!!! I then embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Denim Lilac Arora powder it is the most glorious colour blues and mauves then I got a little carried away with the sewing machine around the edges of my kraft card blank!  I am sharing this card at Anything Goes Challenge Blog - #74 make your own backgrounds Thanks for popping in ' till next time
