Get Funky Challenge - Flying High

It's time for another Get Funky challenge and my turn to hopefully offer some inspiration! The theme has been set by Allison and it is:

Flying High

So anything that flies as long as you've used a Funky Hand product in your creation! Anice offers a freebie each month to fit the theme and you can find it here.

I've used the Funky Freebie for my background and I've printed it at A5 for a smaller pattern plus cut out random clouds and added them with foam pads. I've used a nestie for the background shape and then layered it with Funky Kraft Stash which also have been used to make the owl bodies.

I used a compass to make the circles for the bodies and then a roll of double sided tape for the bit I've taken from the top to make the ears. The left over bit was then used as a template to make the wings which have been cut from I Heart You papers (printed as 9 to a page of A4 for a smaller pattern).

The owls sit on a Marianne Creatables die (a recent purchase! But bought with Amazon vouchers I hasten to add!) A bit of faux stitching, some wobbly eyes and the card is complete!

Good luck with the challenge - deadline is 14 March so you have almost a whole month to get creating! And don't forget the Funky Hand product!
