I used one of my favourite colour palettes for the background, mowed lawn and salty ocean Distress Stains. I also added a few splatters for further interest.
I stamped the SHARP OWL onto a piece of scrap card that was left over from colouring my background and I added a few areas of random text stamped in salty ocean Distress Ink. I added coordinated buttons threaded with twine to his body for dimension and added the sentiment "Spring is here".
I added circles to the bottom of my card and machine stitched across the centre.
