JAI #107 - Just Add Nikki Spencer


This week at Just Add Ink we have a super fun challenge and that is to Just Add Nikki Spencer.  I had a lot of fun doing this, although chosing just one of Nikki's gorgeous cards was a little difficult.

This is my take on Nikki's super cute card

Now I have to tell you, when I was cutting my cardstock and punching my owl bits & pieces, I delusionally thought that I would be able to make four of these cards in the 1-1/2 hrs I had to spend in my studio.  Delusional, I tell you!!!!!!  It took me the whole 1-1/2 hrs just to put THIS ONE together.  I seriously need to be banned from using any type of liquid glue.  We just do not get along!  After a getting glue all over everything, and I mean everything, I decided to stick this owlie together with Dotto, so I could place the pieces (and move them) where I needed to!  I also decided to use my gel pen to finish off the eyes, managing to smudge one in the process (arrgh).  Anywhoo, after all the mess, I'm quite happy with the way it turned out, and I have all the bits & pieces ready to make another 3 cards.  Not quite sure how much time I will need to complete those though, LOL!

The Design Team have got some fabulous interpretations of Nikki's gorgeous cards. be sure to check them out and I look forward to seeing what you choose to CASE

Almost too much cuteness for one card, Jo! Glad you persisted with the messy glue, because this is adorable. Love the colours.

Nikki Spencer said...

Love your beautiful blue owl Jo, l so get the glue, but he is a cutie, so l'm glad you didn't give up!

You made me laugh Jo :) sticking all those little owl bits can be a very sticky business! Glad you persisted as the end result is very cute. Love that little red heart.

This is such a sweet card Jo.
Love the colours you've chosen and especially the way you've done the eyes on the cute little guy.
