Just for Fun - September Challenge

Hello to you today, hope you have had a lovely weekend and managed some crafty fun.
Today's post is a little bit of DT inspiration from me to help inspire you to enter the

Stamps Used:
Wise Friend - Designed by Sam Poole 
 Clock also designed by Sam (background)
Other Items Used:
Distress Ink Pads - Gathered Twigs - Frayed Burlap - Crushed Olive - Pumice Stone - Aged Mahogany 
Also coloured using the same ink pads.
Wow Fine Clear embossing powder - Cream & Brown Card - Glossy Accents.

Such a simple card to make, to make the clock background I didnt even mount the stamp I just stamped it randomly using my hand as I didnt want a perfect image, I stamped the leaves onto cream card with the distress inks and embossed them with the clear powder and cut them out, I then stamped the twigs & sentiment and then the Owl I just adore him :)... I then coloured him using the distress inks using a water brush. Mat and layered it all up and placed the leaves with pinflair to raise them and then added glossy accents to the owls eyes.
