Midnight Tilda

This is the project I started with a little 'distress' in mind! LOL!
I think I may have got a bit carried away!

I used Cosmic Shimmer sprays in Peacock Green and Purple Violet, Ranger Adirondack & Archival dye inkpads and Opalite Iridescent Inkpads with cut & dry foam.

The Tilda image is decoupaged & layered and coloured with Copics. The tree is from a Wendy Brown stamp called 'friends' (which is a trio of owls cuddled on a tree branch).
Now you might wonder where this might fit in, blog challenge-wise, but it just so happens that 'My Time To Craft' is having the theme of their Challenge 72 'neglected or forgotten stash', which half of the stuff on this card is!
To begin with, I've had the Ranger inkpads for at least four years and have just taken the cellophane off most of them to practise 'distressing' and in the end plumped for the colours you see here. In addition, the Opalite pads have the same story. Loved the idea of them but never found a use until this card. The Sizzix Texturz embossing plate I bought about two years ago and have never used it at all (...slinks away ashamed...)!
The Wendy Brown stamp, much as I love it, I have never used before. It just sat, looking reproachfully at me from it's stamp drawer
The perfect pearls I have also had since about 2003! Pots are still full folks...! The oak leaf punch was the very first punch I bought, from QVC in 2002 and I've used it ONCE before. To test it!

The Tilda stamp is new......

Thank you for looking!
