Bird Is The Word

Tuesday, 9 October 2012

Evening everyone!

I'm a little late with this one today - totally forgot to schedule it last night, my head's all over the place!

It's time for another challenge at the Creative Card Crew and luckily I had my card made in advance so I have one to show for this challenge!

We are being sponsored by the ever-so-fabby Simon Says Stamp

And they are offering the lucky winner $20 to spend in their shop!

So to win this fantastic prize all you have to do is make something with the theme...


Here's what I did:

My image is one I've had for a long time and it's a digi from Pollycraft.  I coloured him with the following copics: Owl;E44,43,41. Branch;E29,23. Leaves;YG97,91.

I used a Spellbinders Labels 10 die (available at Simon Says) to cut out the image and added some bronze pearls.  The papers are Imaginisce - Garden Party and some kraft card for layering.
The "Owl be there for you" sentiment is computer generated using the font "Angela" and was cut out by hand.  I added a few Swarovski's to separate the image from the sentiment.

The inside is extra simple and just uses some more of the die cuts.  The sentiment is also computer generated.

 So head over to the Creative Card Crew and join in - I'm looking forward to seeing what you do!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge Blog; Animals
Crafts & Me Challenges; My sentiments exactly
Crafts 4 Eternity; Lot's of leaves
Crafty Boots Challenges; Three (I have 3 crystals)
