Cuttlebug Challenge

The cuttlebug challenge was to use woodsy animals and outdoor items. Also the colour combo was blue, green and orange. I quite like how this project turned out.
I started with a brown paper lunch bag and rolled the top down. I then cut 3 small boxes to the right size to fit inside. The branches were cut off our rosebush and I stuck then into strofoam. I shredded some paper in the shredder and then scrunched it up to hide the foam.
It is hard to see in the photo but I used the distressed stripes folder on the dark brown circle. The little blue and green leaves were also cut from a cuttlebug die. I stamped my owl on chipboard, coloured him in with ink and crackle paint and then put a coat of glossy accents on him. His eyes are bling gems!
Here is a view of the shredded paper.
Tomorrow we will be leaving for Manitoba to visit family. Hopefully I will get to post while we are there but it could be a few days. Luckily I have some exciting new projects to share! Also when I get back I will have a new mini album to post! YAY!
