Creative Owl...

Hi there,

Happy Friday to you! (or happy exam day to me lol!). It's time for the Friday Mashup challenge and this wek we're having fun with punches...

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project with " Punch Art ".
  2. Or Make a project featuring your " Favorite Animal ".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project " with an Animal made from Punches ".

I decided to make a piece of wall art for my sister, who loves owls and loves yellow...

I kinda went the easy route for punch art and used a punch that makes things VERY easy - the Owl builder punch. As well as loving owls, my sister is an apprentice on Savile Row in London and is a very talented tailor/cutter, so I thought the owl needed to have a special waistcoat so I added some mini brads for buttons. I added the word Create to inspire her as she works or draws (she's an amazing artist). This type of wall art is so easy to make using a piece of chipboard - slightly smaller than 6" square. You just cover it with dsp, sand lightly around the edges, punch some holes in the top using a crop-a-dile then treat it like a card base. I used Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon to hang it with. The layout comes from Mojo Monday this week.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Creative Elements
Ink: Charcoal
Paper: Domestic Goddess dsp, Basic Grey, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Chipboard
Tools: Owl builder punch, circles #2 die, scallop square die
Accessories: Daffodil Delight stripped ribbon, Crumb Cake seam binding, silver mini brads, grey marker

I look forward to seeing what people create using their punches this week! Thanks for stopping by...
