Owl shook up!

It’s Pauline’s turn to host this week at Willow Sketchie Challenge and here’s her fabby sketch :

There is also a theme of Warm Colours (Red,Orange,Yellow etc..).Don’t forget you can use the sketch along with the theme or choose either one to play along. You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

Sadly this will be Pauline’s last challenge with us 😦  Will miss you and your wonderful Willow creations (and sketches!),hun.

I’ve used Bit Chilly clear stamp from Willow Designs and coloured this cut little owl with ProMarkers.Woodware Fluffy Stuff has been added to the trim on his hat and to the drippy snow on the branch.The central panel has been edged using a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set.An aperture has been cut and framed in the middle,then acetate placed behind.The red card for the frame was more of an orangey tone so I colour tinted it with an ink pad.Before adhering the image under this with foam tape I added some glittery tinsel stuff that was a magazine freebie last year.So there you have it I made a shaker card!To decorate the card I’ve added some wire edged ribbon tied in a bow,with a brad stuck into it and used the corner punch waste for some extra detail.

    Thank you for joining our current birds theme over on the CraftyMess challenge blog.
    What a wonderful card! Adore the owl he looks cute and fun all rolled into one and is coloured perfectly. The backing layers are brilliant and tie in so well. I love the red, brown and white colours together they make a fun and modern Christmas card.
    Hope to see many more entries from you in our future challenges.
    Love Lisa xxx

    Your card looks so cute, I love the title of your post (made me smile) and you’ve put your spin on the the sketch and made such thoughtful touches – I especially love that holly punch and then repeating the pattern in the paper. Owl bet this will be a favorite card for somebody!

    This is also perfect for our Opus Gluei theme this time around – looks like you are getting yourself ready for the holidays! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us, we love seeing you come back for challenges with us!
