Woodware Challenge Week 44 – Pull Out the Punches – Day 4

Well here we have what I have done when I Pulled out the Punches this week.

I have been playing with the Woodware Owl Punch that was designed by Jane Gill. Only I have not used the owl on these cards. The bird looks rather fun and if you punch it from double sided paper you get a good contrast when you fold over the wing.

Both of the cards have been made with the Black Magic card pad. The card is a core card that is coloured on one side and either black or a very dark brown on the other, I hope that you can see the slight difference in the two cards. It has a nice texture to it and can be sanded.

This card is a pale green and I have used the Crafty Edger and the Scalloped Shell cassette. I have used Raisin Pigment Ink to edge the birds and the Huge Circle Punch. This is my new favourite ink pad (sorry if I have mentioned it before) it is one of six limited edition colours of pigment ink from Clear Snap.

This card is rust and very dark brown. I have stamped Happy Birthday from Jane Gills Clear Magic set Tulips and embossed it with Pearlustre Moonstone. I really like the Pearl Lustre powders as the name says they are pearly and not metallic so give a softer solid finish.

On both cards I have used 3mm Hot Pink Nailheads on the green card and the Cranberry on the rust card.

Thank you for visiting and If you want to share what you have been up to with your punches then you will find the link at the bottom of Sunday’s post or e-mail it to me

    A great idea for this owl/bird punch. I like the way that you have used double sided paper and turned the little wing down. This design could be used to make Christmas cards (sorry – but some people have started already!) as those little birds would make sweet robins!

      What a clever idea, I don’t think that even Jane has done that, but I did borrow the patterned paper idea from her.
