Clean and Simple

The new challenge theme at One Stitch at a Time today is Something Red.
 
For my DT creation I chose to work with this adorable Owl Landing digi stamp by Sentimental Susan:
 
 
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and carefully cut around it:
 
 
I'm still on a bit of a Clean and Simple kick and for this card I liked the idea of having my "something red" be red patterned paper showing through punched-out shapes on the card front. I used a 5x7" card blank and rounded the outside corners, for a clean, modern look. I used a Stampin' Up! punch to punch start shapes out of the card front and layered red patterned paper inside the card. I attached my owl image on foam pads, slightly overhanging the edge of the card.
 
 
To finish I stamped a sentiment using a Stampin' Up! stamp and added some little wooden star shapes which I coloured red with my Promarkers.
 
 
The challenge runs for a week and you don't have to use a Stitchy Bear product to enter but if you do you'll be in with a chance of winning our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

I'm no bird lover Ali but I am taken with the expression on this little owl's face. He looks as though he's shocked himself as he comes in to land. The stars are terrific punched out and backed with red .....hope owl doesn't land with such a bump that he sees stars. Love Ingrid xx

Love the star punch out to see the red paper below. Ingrid is right he does look a bit shocked. Such a cute image.

TTFN,
