Fur and Feathers

We had some wonderful entries for our January theme at Stamping Sensations. Already it's February, though, and time for a new challenge. This month it's


Plenty of scope there, I think. I decided to go for feathers, being unable to resist these adorable owls by Little Claire.

I wanted the owls to be the centre of attention, so, after colouring them with Distress Markers and cutting them out with a Spellbinders die (Labels 10), I kept the rest of the card quite simple. The background papers, which just happened to go perfectly with the image, were a freebie from Making Cards magazine. I computer-generated the sentiment on to a Spellbinders tag, and the diecut flourish is a Marianne Design.

Our sponsor for this month is once again the fabulous Stix2, and just look at what they have generously donated for our lucky winner!

My lovely teamies have excelled themselves with their creations this month, so do go and check them out on the Challenge Blog. I think this is going to be a very popular theme, so I'm looking forward to seeing lots of Fur and Feathers!

Owls always bring a smile Lynne and love this one, in fact I came across it the other day and wondered if it was one I was in 'need' of.

Looking at your photos is the post below I can see you have a very dramatic thaw just as we did. And this morning it's turned very wintry again, roll on Spring.

Those owls are just wonderful, Lynne! I love the colours you've chosen, and the flourish echoing the branch they're perched on - delightful... Great inspiration for a lovely challenge, thank you!
