Hi everybody. Less is More Challenge has a theme of paper piecing this week so I have made a card, rather last minute, using an owl stamp from Indigoblu and some leaves from a set by Hobbycraft. I do hope they don't feel it is too fussy for a CAS card though.
I started by stamping the owl on to a snippet of white card using Adirondack Espresso ink and die cut it with a circle die and then coloured with some of my Spectrum Noir pencils and finished by adding some Glossy Accents to the eyes. I then adhered this to a white square card.
Next I found some snippets of paper with nice autumnal colours amongst the freebie pads I have collected over several years as papers last a long time with me as I don't use them very often. I have used several of the different leaf shapes from this Hobbycraft stamp set which I bought a few weeks ago and is being used for the first time, and stamped on to these snippets again using the Espresso ink. I then fussy cut them out and stuck them in a circle around the owl using glue gel for dimension to make a nice frame. I finished by stamping a sentiment.
Before I go I would like to introduce a new follower called Florence whose blog you will find here. She is a very creative lady and her work encompasses cards, crafts and photography so please do go and take a look, I promise you won't be disappointed.
Thanks for visiting my blog today and your interest is always much appreciated.
I would also like to enter the following challenges:
