TWIT

TWOO!!
A while ago I asked Lily at OCTOPODE FACTORY if she would design some bird and owl images for me .......these are the OWLS she came up with!
 And this is my first play with them! 
They are available as digi images in her Etsy shop.......although I am a rubber stamper at heart the one thing I do like about digi images is that you can re-size them!

 They are coloured with GRAPHITINT watercolour crayons.............


 ..........the branches and leaves were done with the card dipped in paint method........

 ........and the OWL word is one I carved myself!
A friend gave me a lino carving tool and blades for Christmas so I put it to use when I found these cheap erasers at the supermarket.......its fun and easy to do, have a go!!! I like the extra lines and dots etc but you don't have to have those!
