This afternoon I have finally got some time to craft! Yaaay!!
I popped over to the Less is More challenge and saw that their theme is the colours of "your nations flag". As I'm in the UK I decided on using the Union Jack colours of red, white, and blue.
I started with a SU Whisper White 5" square card, and stamped the naked tree and leaves from Clarity Stamps in the bottom left corner in Brilliant Blue so it looked like a branch sticking out. I then pieced together a Poppy Red owl from the SU Owl 2 step punch ( which I'd done with Jacqueline's punch on Tuesday) , and coloured the WWhite tummy as the Union Jack with Promarkers. I added his eyes, and then cut the tops off the WWhite heart for his beak as the flag was a little too busy to see the red one created by the V cut in the tummy piece. I then stamped the Woodware sentiment in Real Red, elongating the You so it would sound like an owl when read out!!
Yes, I know how daft I am, but it made me smile when I did it, and I'm sure I'm not the first person to have done it!!
Anyway, here he is in all his glory
Recipe : card = SU Whisper White and Poppy Red
Inks = Brilliant Blue and Real Red
Stamps = Clarity and Woodware
Tools = Owl 2 step Punch
This was quite a quick card to make, but I was so engrossed in colouring his tummy, I hadn't heard the sudden heavy downpour of rain, and all my lovely, nearly dry washing that was out on the line is now soaking wet again !! Aaaaaaaaah!!
I'd better go and get it in, Thanks for dropping by and I hope you like my owl.
