As the February hostess over at CCEE Stampers, this week Vicky is asking us to use punch art ~ not just punching out dies, but use your punches to create something...a dog, an elephant...whatever. She suggested checking out the gallery here for ideas, and I know there are some fantastic ideas out there, and I have quite a collection of punches some of which were bought specifically for punch art.
But... I had this lovely card from Di on my mantel, and thought I could try to recreate at least one of those owls.
Well, something funny about the ears made mine look an awful lot more like Yoda than an owl, till I thought to add a bit of the negative from the round tab punch at the top of his head, so I don't know if a bird in the hand is worth two in the gallery, but he'll have to do for the challenge!!
I used circle and square punches, with some embossing and sponging. Petal punch for feet and beak. Negative from the round tab punch for the top of his head.
