The organised crafter inside me always likes to get all my elements together before piecing the whole project together (I know this isn't always possible but I am always a lot happier in myself when it is!) The tan card stock was edged in Sepia archival ink and the pink elements were edged in Dusky pink by Oakhouse Studio. Can you tell what it is yet? (N.B. I actually ended up using 5 pieces of the tan card stock, to make it easier to secure the hearts in place as the heart punch I have is smaller than the one used in the original design).
Once I had gathered all the elements (which I believe takes the most time in any project), it was time to piece them all together.
It's a cute little owl!
Back, Head and Front
The banner the owl is holding is from a Stampin' Up set (Banner Blast) and was stamped in Dusky pink by Oakhouse Studio before being punched out with the co-ordinating banner punch.
Left: the completed card with a little friend to stick inside (made using the Stampin' Up Owl punch using the same papers as were used on the main card). Right: the inside of the card.
Sleepy Owl (not sad owl as both Tom and his mum thought), next time I shall try something else with the eyes.
Thanks for reading my blog, I really enjoyed making this card and all credit for the inspiration and design goes to Bronwyn Eastley of Addinktive Designs, who in turn got the idea from Sharnee Torrents of Alarnee Creations, that's all for now folks, please come back to read more soon,
