Happy Tuesday, blog visitors, Kirsten here & yes, I’m using the very cute owls from the

I decided I was going to paper piece this little chap/chappess, so I stamped it a few times with black Archival ink & started colouring.


I was happier with the second selection of colours, but I used the first owl as my base for the paper pieced layers.


My original plan was to stamp & cut out the stars,but I realised it was much too fiddly & quickly gave up. I stamped the with various colours of distress inks, then filled them in with watercolour pens & did the same thing with the moon & the branch. I added the Joy Crafts clouds & the gold confetti stars & stamped the word with alphabet stamps from my stash.

On the second card
I used Spiced Marmalade & Fired Brick distress inks through the Special Touch brick wall mask & added some lines with a fine-liner black pen.  When I’d finished the card I thought the wall needed something more, so I added the little heart & the white Joy Craft vintage flourish flower.
