Whoot Whoot!

Today's card is for this weeks Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I thought it was about time I created another owl card ... and as I hadn't used my owl set from Cornish Heritage Farms .... of course I had to get it out and play.

I love the new Basic Grey papers and this is one from the "Archaic" range which I thought suited this owl. The owl is colored to match the green in the DP.

I stamped the branch onto my white card and the owl on a scrap piece of white card. The owl was cut out and attached to the branch using foam tape. I used my rectangle nestablities to created the scallop layer for the owl image .... cutting out 2 rectangles and joining them so get the size I needed. I also added paper piercing to the top right hand corner of this panel and also the mellow moss strip using my paper piercing mat & tool.

Stamps: U R A Hoot Set - Cornish Heritage Farms
Paper: White; Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip & Really Rust - SU; Archaic DP - Basic Grey
Other: Black Ink; Rectangle Nestabilities; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon; Brown Brads; Foam Tape
