Twit Twoo - Today I have a Little Painted Harvest Owl for You !!!

I have been dying to share this little chappy with you !

You may have read my Blog yesterday, when I spoke about thinking "outside the box" and using your stamps in ways that they were not originally intended..................................

So today, I bring you my cute little Painted Harvest Owl.  Don't you think he's cute ?!!  My family love him which is great, because this usually is an indication as to whether my idea for a card "works" or not.

I used the two step sunflower stamps for his eyes (adding two punched circles to complete his startled little expression).

I also used the sunflower stamps for all the messy little feathers.  You might just be able to make out that I used the large Burlap background stamp for the main part of his body.

I fussy cut around his eyes and body on a separate panel of Whisper White and then added this stamped layer to another panel of Whisper White.  This gives the card some texture.  I also cut another sunflower from a scrap piece which I used for the little tuft on the top of his head, hidden behind the small part of a large punched circle which forms his head (beneath the tuft).  The beak is a 1" square cut on the diagonal.

I added layers of Chocolate Chip, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.

My card is a 6 x 6 card - so nice and big and square to show him off to his full potential.

I really had fun with this - to me that is what crafting should be about. 

Well I do hope you like the little fella as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by today and please pop back again tomorrow.
