Today I'm sharing another of my cards using another fabulous new collection from Craft Consortium 'Over The Hedge' (in partnership with Melissa Lowry). The collection launches on Create & Craft TV today time on Tuesday 10th September @ 2pm (UK time), the products can also be purchased in crafts both here in the UK and in the USA. The collection depicting hedgehogs, owls and foxes contains fabulous stamps, a 12" x 12" paper pad and embellishments. The stamp sets contain 2 of the same animals but in different poses and they are approx 2¾"-2½" tall; other elements are approx ½"-3" tall (1.5cm - 9cm).
For my card today I 'm using 'Olivia The Owl', which I coloured with pencils onto desert storm Neenah card. I think she's so pretty with her long eyelashes. I hope you like her. :)
The links to the new products will be added after the launch, or you can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here and sign up for an update to this launch and any future product launches.
Here's What I Did
I stamped the 'Olivia The Owl' onto brown Neenah card with black ink, then die cut her into a circle. I drew a branch beneath her and then stamped leaves at the end of it, and around her. All the elements were then colour in with pencils. More leaves were stamped, coloured in and fussy cut out, these were then loosely glued over the top of the same leaf on the circle to give movement.
When everything was coloured in, the topper was attached to a cream die cut circle and then added to the centre of the card blank, using funky foam.
To complete the card I added 3 punched out hearts beneath the topper.
