This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we would love to see you use Autumn Colors in your vintage or shabby chic creations.
I was so excited to see that our challenge this week was to use Autumn Colors. I thought it would be fun to do something using an owl. I searched the web and found this very cute Owl template by Jane. I thought it would be a great time to use the Hocus Pocus and the Words and Music digital papers from Gecko Galz, to create my Owl.
I used the template to cut out the different pieces for my owl. I used pop dots behind the owl's mask, wings, mid section and beak. I also used them to elevate the whole owl up off the card. I used the green and ivory jute trim as well as burgundy may arts leaves trim, orange swirl ribbon, orange mini ric rac, brown and white striped ribbon and brown sugar twine all from Really Reasonable ribbon. The yellow rosette, brown blingy bling mesh (tops of wings) and brown felt leaf trim are all from Pro 31 Designs. Here are some close ups.
I distressed all the edges of the owl pieces with my scissors then inked them with Ranger's Vintage Distress inks. I added the brown sugar twine to my vintage buttons, two for the eyes, and one for the flower to the right.
I did ink the edges of the text boxes, and used pop dots underneath them.
I can't wait to see what you create and link up with us at
