Today I'm posting a pretty goofy card I made for my hubby's birthday tomorrow.
I used the Two Step Owl punch and just played around. I saw this pirate made of the owl on Lynn Pratt's blog in early fall, but it was so cute I wanted to make one too. So I pretty much CASED her owls on my card and here it is.
The main item used is the two step owl punch and a whole lot scraps! Some colors and stamps are retired, but I still use them for personal use. The card base is Poppy Parade Red, matted with Chocolate chip and Marina Blue. I also distress the blue mat with matching blue ink. A little touch of So Saffron to add a contrast.
The pirates were done with several punches; the two step owl, circle, heart, plus some free hand snips for the peg leg, and eye patch and boat. A scrap of the trim lace punch was cut to form a small sail, then added stripes of retired DSP.
The boat was run through the BS with the wood grain emboss folder even though it's hard to see here, and an extra strip of blue was cut with the curvy edge on my cutter and distressed with ink to make water waves.
Well I guess I just needed to do something Goofy and Fun to change the mood around here because this weekend was pretty depressing. We spent many hours either in the hospital or on the phone as so many of our family or friends (friend, friend's husband, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law) are battling the Big "C"; it's just so so sad.
Well that's it for now. Hootie says "Thanks for stopping by and please a comment".
