Challenge 56 Artful Time-Owls

Hi All. Nice to have you drop by.

Time for another challenge at Artful Times and my turn to chose the theme this time.

The theme is Owls as I just love them so I chose this theme.  You can make anything you like so long as it has an Owl somewhere on it. Hope you join in as it is always wonderful to see what others make and visit their blogs to find out more about the project. This will be my last DT piece for Artful Times.

This is what I made-a card with a secret-sorry about the puffin poking its nose in :(

I saw this on Google and loved it but the one I saw needed a special machine to be able to make it and I didn't have one-the file is here. I  decided to make my own version and made it up as I went along basically.

When you lift up the head there is a pocket for a gift card and I added the shapes in different types of card to make the feathers. The feet are made of felt.

Lift up the body and there is the inside of the card, The stamps are from Personal Impressions.

Hope you visit Artful Times to see what the others have made and join in to have an opportunity to win the monthly prize.

Love Chrissie x
