This was a square card I did a while ago using the "Wild Owl" themeplate.
The card was done on watercolour paper and I used my Ink dusters with just regular ink pads to create the background scene and a fine line watercolour brush using Versafine smokey grey for the faint line clouds. The shadow tree from the "Orchard" themeplate was lightly stamped in Versafine smokey grey and the foreground grasses are from the "Wild Meadow" themeplate just stamped in various green inks. A torn paper strip, again coloured using my Ink dusters and then a gold embossed phrase from the "Words of Wisdom" themeplate and finally attached with brads.
The swallow was stamped with a Brilliance black ink, and the flourish bird was stamped on to an off cut from the background the cut out and placed on the torn strip to make it seem as though it was perching ( Not sure if that is a real word ! ) . Everything was then mounted onto a gold layer, and then on to a black card.
