Owl Awesomeness...


It's time for another great ColourQ challenge and this week we get to play with some of this year's In Colours with this pretty combination...

I already had a little Project Life card in Hello Honey that I had stamped with this fab sentiment with Smoky Slate ink, ready to make up a card, but it had been sitting in my 'unfinished pile' for weeks. When I saw the combo I knew I wanted to use it so I grabbed my owl punch and got to work...

Tee hee!! So cute! I actually made this with my sister in mind as she has just gotten a LONG overdue promotion so I wanted to send her something to say congrats - she loves owls and yellow so this is perfect for her (hopefully!). I used the sketch from Fab Friday for my layout, but I had to make a bit of larger card than usual to accommodate the PL card - the finished card is 7x5".

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Big News
Ink: Smoky Slate (inkpad and Blendabilities)
Paper: Happiness Is Project Life collection, Moonlight dsp, Blackberry Bliss, Naturals White, So Saffron, Smoky Slate
Accessories: Hello Honey ribbons, Subtles buttons
Tools: Flower Frenzy die, Owl builder punch

Make sure you check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team this week - we'd love to have you play along with us too!

Thanks for stopping by...
