Thank Whoo

Hi Everyone! I have a quick post for you and a little secret to share. I have been asked to be a guest designer for the color challenges over on Splitcoaststampers for the month of October. So every Tuesday I will be playing along in the Challenge! It is my most favorite challenge on Splitcoast! Coming in a close second would be the Sketch challenge. They are both so much fun! I love when there is a color combo that really makes me think a little...and this week's colors were no exception. Our hostess for this week gave us Tangerine Tango, More Mustard, and Soft Suede to work with, and letting us add a neutral of either White or Vanilla. Every week there is also a desert option, and this week was to make a Thanksgiving card, or a thank you card. I chose a thank you sample...

To make my Owl I used my XL Oval punch. I punched out the oval to form his body, and then re-inserted the end back into the punch, to form the top of his head. The feathers on his chest are actually the positive pieces left over from using the scallop trim border punch. His wings were made the same as his body, by just re-inserting a  punched XL oval of Soft Suede back into the punch, on the long sides. I clear embossed a scrap of soft suede and then punched his eyes (centers) using the cropadile. The sentiment is from the set Just Believe, and I created the "whoo" using the Billboard alphabet for the Bigshot. Super Cute! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -
