Tufty for Quirky Crafts

Hello lovely peeps

I'm appearing as a Guest Designer today over at Quirky Crafts Challenges, who I'm delighted to say are back after a 9 month break. It's challenge reminder time and the theme this month is 'Picture This'
(incorporate a photo in your project, or take inspiration from it)

The sponsors are Bugaboo stamps and Crafty Ribbons.

I couldn't find any nice photos of my own, but as I already have several bird stamps by Bugaboo I looked on the internet for owl pictures instead. This one made me burst out laughing, isn't he fab?

I chose Birthday Bird 03 to work with, he has great eyelashes (though they're not a patch on Tufty's). I've also drawn inspiration from the colours in the photo and tried to echo the stripy texture of his feathers with my papers and twine.

I coloured the image in with Promarkers (Cool Grey 1-5, Daffodil Bloom, Mustard, Lime Zest and Pear Green)

I layered up a 6"x6" card with papers from my stash and added a sentiment stamped with Handwritten Phrases by LOTV. 

Thank you so much to the girls at Quirky Crafts for having me as a Guest DT. They are having a DT call at the moment if you looking for a position.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Send a Smile for Kids Animal cards
Double D Challenges Things that fly
Kitty Bee Designs #90 living things with wings
Sparkles Forum Challenges # 90 Let's go green
 Simon Says Stamp (Wed) Bit of green

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Katrina, thanks so much for being a Quirky Guest Designer and sorry I didn't pick it up last week, all sort of problems, mainly not being able to login to the computer didn't help! I love the card and the funny photo you found.
