This week on Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge so I decided to use my new Two-Step Owl punch. I love this punch. It’s so much fun to use. I created a boy and girl owl using the heart punch to make a bow tie and hair bow to differentiate between the two. I wanted to have my two owls on a tree branch so I cut free hand a trunk with branch in Early Espresso and ran it through my Big Shot using my distressed texture plate. I punched the vests and ran the Old Olive and embossed it with the Lattice embossing folder and embossed the yellow dress with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder then used the Owl punch to punch polka dots in Tangerine Tango then glued them on using Tombow Glue. I punched the bottom of the owl again in Daffodil Yellow and Old Olive to give color to the feet.
