SDC#130 Something New

This weeks challenge over at Stampotique SDC#130 is 'Something New'. We are asked to use something that either we've been given or bought for ourselves recently.

Hmmm bit tricky(would have been simple back in the day when all my spare cash went on craft items), but before I took my break from stamping I bought a couple of packs of Papermania pre cut squares of white and  kraft heavyweight paper/ card and a new white Uniball Signo pen (the best on the market in my opinion) .

I stamped :
OWL WITH WINGS (thats the big owl that comes with the set of wings you can add on if you wish)
all onto both the white AND kraft paper and cut out the images . I also drew round a cup into white paper and cut that out for a large moon. Then just played pushing round and swapping over kraft with white or white with kraft until I was happy with the balance of the composition. Where my huge scissors (mislaid my small pair along with my paper cutter) wouldnt get close enough into the more tricky shapes to cut around I used the white pen.





 The next image is a bit blurry, sorry.





I treated myself to a couple of cheap box frames when I was at the supermarket the other day, so popped my little owl wearing his 'hat that lets the rain in ' into one.

Wow this is absolutely wizard and so different and brilliantly so from the style I have grown to love and used too.

Just using two colours is truly a difficult task - one that I struggle with - but you have achieved and wonderful work of art with such depth - and it looks almost like a wonderful wood carving.

I like the sound of your pen - I must try and search one out
