Owl Punch card

I recently did a workshop using the owl punch. I have always been a little taken with our punches and so was very excited to use the new owl punch.

This card uses four different punches (as I said I am just a little taken with using the punches! LOL!), the 1" circle punch, the modern label, the decorative label (in the Winter Mini) and the Owl Punch.

I used the circle punch in two ways - firstly the punched out circle was used as a mask for the moon as I coloured the night sky and then the scrap sheet that the circle was punched from was used as a mask to cover the sky so that I could colour the moon with frost white shimmer paint.

The card stock used is - Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Ink colours - Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Stamp Sets - Cottage Garden, Thanks for Caring
Accessories - Shimmer Paint (Frost White)

Shaving Cream Technique

Hi Everyone, i have been meaning to post this card for ages.

I did this card for a workshop a while ago and everyone loved making it (although it was an extremely messy experience!!). We used the Shaving Cream technique which involves shaving cream and re-inkers. A little tricky but well worth the effort I believe.

The stamp sets used are Pocket Silhouettes and Curvy Verses.

Let me know what you think...
