Have a hoot

Hi Guys

Well it is time for the second challenge of the year for Try It On Tuesday.  This week it is a tag with a male theme.  I chose the theme for this week so I hope you enjoy.

I have used the Punch Bunch set that you can earn for free if you spend £45. 

I have cut my tag by hand from Very Vanilla (page 85) so that I can get the proportions that I want.  I then coloured it with crumb cake (page 85) on the bottom layer of colour and here and there with Soft Suede (page 85).  I drew the bark markings with Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker. 

My owls have been stamped and cut.  I stamped with Soft Suede onto Soft Suede for the owl wings and Crumb Cake (page 85) for the chest.  I cut the eyes from Very Vanilla (page 85) stamped in Basic Grey (page 85) and the beak is punched from the heart to heart punch (page 104) in Tangerine Tango (page 82).  I have cut the owls by hand but it will be sooooo much better come April.  (NEWSFLASH we are getting the two step owl punch so you NEED to get this stamp set).

Because this is a male themed tag I have only added a tiny bit of sparkle by putting some of the Basic Rhinestones on the eyes of my owls. (as you can see below)

The branches were punched from the Two Step Bird Punch in Very Vanilla and I coloured with my daubers (page 103) with Soft Suede (page 85) and Old Olive (page 82). 

I have hand written my greeting using Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker (page 85) and punched out with the Word Window punch (page 104) and added some Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon (page 97).

I  hope you like and until next time

happy crafting.
