Well 'Owl Be!

Hi there my crafty buddies.  I didn't think I would get this done, and I'm cutting it a bit fine but...

I have today tried some paper piecing.  The owl digital stamp is from SKdigis Shop, I was lucky enough to be one of the blog candy winners for the SKdigis new challenge blog.

When I saw this owl in the shop, I just had to have him and knew he would be a great paper piecing project.

So here he is.


I printed him out 7 times on different coloured card stock and then cut out all the different layers.

Did you spot my error!  I forgot to cut out the bits in between the branches, doh! Good if you didn't cause I have fixed it now LOL!


The embossed layer is the Devine Swirls folder with the Cuttlebug.  I inked all the edges of the layers.

The sentiment is a freebie digital from the Pink Cat Studios, she has some lovely sentiments.


I really enjoyed doing this and made a right mess on the floor in my craft room! But, he was worth it as I think he is so adorable.

So, just another quick (ish) card to share with you today.

This card is being entered in the following challenges

SK Digis Challenge #1 - Anything Goes and use an SK digis image. (closes 12 Sept)
