BOO !!,,,,

I fancied making a CAS card. Its been a few years since making one , but I had two challenges in mind when I was putting this together. One was a theme challenge- Coby is hosting  'BOO ! ' at Stampotique Designer's Challenge (SCD#247) and Less is More's sketch challenge #278.




I used STAMPOTIQUE ORIGINALS stamps:



So my starting point was OWL WITH WINGS, which looks like this...



 This stamp design gives you the option of adding the wings to create any wing position you like. I fancied putting this owl into a 'peepo' pose (a take on 'Boo' ), but to be honest if you look at Owl below,I think he looks more like he's going OLE' ! and doing a Spanish dance.









The sketch I based this layout on is from Less is More's latest challenge. My final result is quite removed from the actual sketch given (see below) but its what I used to create the end result, so I hope its ok and close enough.


Thanks for stopping by ...x


p s...as I type this, there is 20% off Owl with Wings from A Sprinkle of Imagination here in the UK and 10/20% of other Stampotiques too.

Thought I'd pop over to have a wee look at your blog after reading your sweet comment on my blog (thank you). Such lovely work; I can definitely see how much you enjoy painting/colouring! You do fantastic work, and I especially love what you've done with the owl (made him 3D with the addition of wings. Enjoy your day!
