Swap Owl!

Posted by Micah at 12:14 PM
Well I joined a swap... and it's a punch art swap. I was going to create a new punch art character (working on them!!) but I had requests for the owl that Colleen Hilchie showed me how to do. I wanted to use up some of the retired pinks and purples from Stampin' Up and to challenge myself to work with colors I love but seem to have no luck working with! I'm pretty happy with the results!

So here it is! A sneak peek for those participating in the swap. I did something different this time, I made the wings mobile! I think moving bits on cards are really cool and fun. It means using more embellishments and dimentional tape, but I'm okay with that. Hey, I could teach my owl how to use semaphore flags!

Stampin' Up materials used: paper (sahara sand, some pinks and purples that I'm sure are retired, very vanilla), ink (perfect plum), stamps ("Sprinkles") and punches, (tag, scallop circle, trio flower, circles and trio heart).

Close to My Heart materials used: stamps ("A Little Buzz" and "Hodgepodge Alphabet")

Other materials used: ribbon, itty bitty brads, creative memories corner punch
