Monster Spike turns into an Owl

This week's cas-tastic Wednesday challenge is to case one of the design team's cards. I chose Agata's very fun monster card. I have been enjoying Jill's blog "inspired by" and think that casing other people's cards is one of the biggest compliments you can give. I must say that I tried really hard to have my little Hero Arts owl have mis-matched socks like Spike, but after several creative attempts (legs from a frog stamp, body from a giraffe stamp) I decided it didn't work and left the feet alone. Since I've used buttons on this card I'll enter it in the Everything But The Kitchen sink button challenge. Agata-- loved your tip on using graph paper (she cased that from Jane- who's digital stamp she used). I raided my son's drawing book and now have some "back to school" ideas brewing with graph paper. I also "borrowed" the eyeballs from my children's art supplies.

Materials: Hero Arts digital owl, Lawn Fawn Just My Type sentiment, mystery flower stamp (woodblock stamp with no company name on it), orange and yellow cheap markers, graph paper, eyeballs, Stampin Up black ink, Versacolor Brown Ink, versamark, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, buttons compliments of Ruby

Ahh, great card to case and fabulous interpretation. Spike makes a rather great owl! Love the yellow feathers mixed in and the addition of the star buttons.

This is SO FUN!!! I love using googly-eyes on cards- but that owl cracks me up! The star buttons are a great addition! :D

Thank you for the compliment! :) Your owl is totally adorable but I understand that making him wear mismatched socks was mission impossible! :) Thanks for playing!
