Patchwork Owl

A couple of days ago I did a workshop and for the first time in five years I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do this time! This didn't last long and I did have a flash of inspiration in time for my workshop and this is what we made


We had a go at making our own backing paper from scraps of left over decorative papers - I used some Springtime Vintage DSP, a punched image and some die cut shapes, it always amazes me though when we all use the same technique but end up with totally different cards.
As always as this is a workshop make the tutorial will soon be ready on my Craft Club Blog so watch this space.
I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges
Alphabet Challenge Blog - F is for Feathered Friends
Lisa Somerville's Bloggers Challenge - Make Your Own Background Paper
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Punches/die Cuts.

Thanks for looking - see you soon - Jacqueline xx
