'NOEL' The Owl




This little hanger completes my trio of Christmassy items all using the same Cosmo Cricket  6 x 6 inch printed papers.  The heart shape is another chipboard blank which has been covered back and front with papers as the base.






The owl and tree are rubber stamps from Hampton Arts.  I have stamped the full owl in black Archival Ink on four of the papers and then trimmed out elements which I have then reassembled to make the whole again.  Noels eyes have been covered in Glossy Accents to make them pop (looks a bit like he has been on the sherry !).






The tree has been stamped and trimmed out in the same way but this time coloured with Distress stains in forest moss and barn door. The letters have been cut out from another of the papers to spell out NOEL, hence his name.






Finishing touches were to add two eyelets with the crop-a-dile and to make a hanger with florists wire, bending it into shape. A large red jingle bell was added at the base of the heart.

Loved making it again.
