Punch Fun.....Again.......

I was looking back through my photos and found a card I had not posted!!! It is inly abt a month old...and was put together as a challenge card for Inspirations4U. Madeline set this......

I had to to a slight substitution, as I did not have Early Espresso or Marina Mist, so I used Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue. For some odd reason, my mind went to nature. This is what I came up with...

Between you and turned out a lot better than I had hoped. I was inspired but a version of this card here on SCS. To do the fence I cut 3cm wide strips of CS and then fed it in throught the top (underside) of the Small Tag punch so that just the top of the fence was nipped. hope that makes sense?? I then ran it through the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder. I also sponged the clouds using a scallop circle punch. You can find the tutorial here. Looks better close up!!

This was the first time I had given my owl "wings"....also with the scallop circle punch, which also happened to be used to do the bushes on the fence. The vest on the owl was done by stamping the image from Itty Bitty Backgrounds onto the CS and then cutting it out as I did bot have any suitable blue DP.


This was such a fun and happy card. I hope it makes you smile too.
