Out on a Limb


Hi everyone.  Today is the start of the new challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This time, the challenge is hosted by the very talented Vicki (All I Do Is Stamp).









I used free digital images available from Scribbles Designs (click on link above), to create this fun card.  I fussy-cut the pieces and paper layered (paper pieced) the owl, sponging around the outside edges of all the pieces to add shading and depth. Then I glued it together, added clear wink of stella to the beak and eyes before coating them in glossy accents.  So fun!  The leaves with fussy-cut, sponged for shading, and shaped with my stylus and mat before mounting them to a die-cut branch.

This month we are so thrilled to have Birgit (Rapport fran ett skrivbord) joining us as Guest Designer.  Please click HERE to see Birgit's amazing "green" card, along with the cards from the rest of our talented Design Team.

Come join in the fun and play along.  Make a CAS card that includes green and enter the challenge ... hope to see you in the gallery! :)

I'm entering this card into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Things that fly.
