One Stitch at a Time Challenge 20

My first week on the DT of One Stitch at a Time! We're sponsored this week by Sew Many Cards who supplied the images used by the team, and Hobby Habitat who supply a range of crafting goodies including the gorgeous die cuts you may have seen on the OSAAT blog. The prices for those die cuts are frankly amazing!

The theme of the challenge  at OSAAT this week is to use ribbon and lace.

Isn't that owl cute? I just love his expression - it could be sad or just very intense - so versatile. I added the wording and coloured him with Promarkers - using the blender pen to get the stippled effect on his chest. Then I added some paper I put together using the image colours and my Promarker colour chart, and finished it off with some ribbon, lace, and a felt butterfly. 

I hope you can join us at One Stitch at a Time this week.

I'm entering this card for the following challenges: Incy Wincy which requires 'Things with Wings',
Stamp with Fun which has a theme of birthdays,
A Spoonful of Sugar which as an 'Animal Crackers' theme,
Bunny Zoe Crafts which has a theme of 'nice and girly'. (I think lace makes it girly ...)
Shelly's Images which is 'Anything goes with a celebration' - I think a birthday qualifies - and
Rosie D's which has a Summer Birthday theme
Fashionista Friday which wants something with wings,
Craftilicious which is looking for 'cute',
Whimsical Ink which is looking for things with wings, and
Quirky Crafts which is looking for ribbon.

And, if you need an image or some paper, Stitchy Bear Stamps is having a sale!  Click on the link to get to the bargains!
