easter chicks

Hi there! I hope you are all having a good week. Isn't the weather just glorious?! I hope you are all taking a little time out of your busy lives to kick back and enjoy it! 

Here's the 5th card in the spring card club collection. Similar layout to the penguin card it also uses the owl builder to make these sweet little chicks!

Easter Chicks

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Borderlines
Ink: So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Early Espresso
Punches: Owl Builder, 5 Petal Flower
Extras: Cocktail Stick, Sponge

Okay so this is the same layout really but the chicks have wings which are just the petals cut off the 5 petal flower punch. The chicks were sponged to give a little bit more shading and texture. The top little chick is holding a banner which has the sentiment on it - how sweet right?! 
Anyway I won't go into all of the ins and outs of how I made the card - you'll have to read my post on the penguin card for that! 

Hope you liked this little take on the owl punch - its such a versatile punch. If you haven't got it yet I'd totally recommend getting it - its totally worth it!!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I have that owl punch but it's the first I've seen it used like this....amazing!!!

    1. Thanks. Well I hope I have inspired you with another way to use your owl punch! Such a wonderfully versatile punch! x
