Through the arched window

Hi all, as promised my post today is a card I made using the Tonic Domed Window Die & Window Basket Die.
I've had great fun playing around with this die & have lots of ideas of future cards & projects I'd like to make using it.
In my last post my card made using this die was quite clean & simple really. This time I wanted to do a card with a bit more of a distressed look to it.

After cutting & embossing both the window & the window basket, I distressed them with brushed corduroy distress inks.
On white card & using brushed corduroy, I stamped the tree design & the owl leaves & flowers. The owl was stamped twice. This is a Kanban stamp set that I've had for quite a while.
 I cut around all the leaves, flowers & owls & then coloured them with brushed corduroy, peacock feathers & mustard seed. I also die cut some of the leaves from the Window Basket die & coloured those as well.
I cut a cloud shape from a post it note & used it as a mask with peacock feathers for the sky behind the tree & stuck the window frame over the top.
I used turquoise card & a couture creations embossing folder, craft card & a dark teal card all mat & layered & distressed around the edges with the blade of my scissors.

The owl, leaves & flowers were layered & stuck into place & I added a few punched craft card flowers too plus some glossy accents & gold cosmic shimmer pearlescent pva to finish.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.
See you again soon!
