Allsorts sketch challenge

Good morning folks

The challenge this week at Allsorts is a sketch challenge. I love a sketch and how you can play and interpret them. This is the 
sketch -
And this is my card - 
I have used - 
  • matt black card
  • old gold centura pearl
  • Sara's signature collection Just for men time piece embossing folder
  • Sara's signature collection Just for men checkerplate embossing folder
  • Embossalicious clocks embossing folder
  • Tattered Lace Olly Owl die set
  • Tattered Lace nested chains die set
  • Spellbinder's spritely sprockets die set
  • Pebeo gilding wax - silver, king gold, renaissance gold and empire gold

I cut the owl out of matt black card and applied different gilding waxes to the wings, head, body and eyes.
