What a hoot!

The image for the progressive challenge at Limited Runs is a cute little owl. I have a friend who is owl mad so I had her in mind when I made this card.


Materials used: 
Limited Runs – Mini Owl 1 (free if you took part in the previous  month’s challenge or you are a new participant)
free log image from internet
Docrafts Papermania Owl Folk designer papers
A5 white card blank
X-Press It card
white printer card
Copic pens

Print out the owl x3 at the required size and the log x1. Colour images with Copic pens. Fussy cut one complete owl, the eyes and beak from image 2 and just the beak from image 3. Use gel glue to layer up the different parts of the owl. Fussy cut the log. Print out the greeting on white card, trim to size and edge with a black pen.

Use two of the designer papers to cover the front of the card, each a little smaller than the one beneath. Use gel glue to stick on the log and owl giving it some shaping beforehand.

Finally add the sentiment.

It will be a little quiet here for the next couple of weeks, the craftroom is closing for cleaning and I am trying to sort out some house jobs that have been waiting until the end of term and can wait no longer!

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
