Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Olive Owl

it's not really, it's certain celery..it just sounded better... :)

The lovely Purple Princess set the sketch and theme for this weeks challenge on the CMLI group on Craftbubble and the theme was monochromatic. Determined not to use black I had a flash of inspiration about this punch and CC ink and card

I have also managed to shoehorn a lot of unused items on this card (owl punch, flower punch, leaf die and background stamp!). How good am I ??

Stampin Up! Certain Celery Card and Ink
Stampin Up Owl Punch
Stampin Up Sentiment
Nesties (Circles and Banners)
Marianne Flower Die
Double Do Vine Die
Ribbon from stash
Gingham Background Stamp by Stamp'n'Stor
Card Candy by Craftwork Cards

I must try and use the owl punch more!!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Waste not Wednesdays  - for fun
Truly Scrumptious - All creatures great and small
The Crazy Challenge - use a die or punch
Allsorts - your choice
