A Solitary Owl

Hi, everyone!

Here today with a card for this month's OWH Our Daily Bread Design challenge. This month, we have been asked to make cards featuring dies and/or punches. Well, I recently broke down and bought that blasted Stampin' Up! owl punch. And, at last weekend's Simon Says Stamps CREATE party, I purchased an A2 curve die.

So, without further ado, here we go.

Glitz sunshine in my soul dp; Cardstock Warehouse Paper Company black
SU owl and bird punches; SSS A2 curve die
TPC Studio heat embossed in Distress Ink walnut stain
sponging in Distress Ink black soot with blending tool
(still loving that SU magnetic pad!)

Love this die. Sandy featured it on a card last week at CREATE and I immediately knew it needed to be added to the menopause room stash! It adds such interest to the card while keeping it really flat. And, it turns out I was able to cut both sheets of dp at the same time. :)

Struggled with the colors for this one. After deciding on the two patterns, I originally went with a brown owl. However, I really felt like I needed a third color... just couldn't land on just the right color. Took a dinner break and came back with the idea to go with black. And, I'm pretty pleased with the look that the black silhouette gives... especially for a Miss You card.

Parting Thoughts

Words 2 Scrap By is accepting entries for the June Oh, The Places You'll Go challenge. Bobbi and I would love to have you play along!

  1. Sybrina, you are going to go owl punch crazy! I like that curve die, too. I might have to use your idea and send a card to the babies....

  2. I love the curved edge on this card, and the cute owl!!
