Owls in buttons

Challenges:
a mans card-Saturday Challenge
in the deep end-Cupcake Craft
three circles-One Stop Craft
cute critters-PollyCraft
a stitch in time-Papertake Weekly
circles-Cutie Pie

I watched a video tutorial on youtube, Lawnfawn, showing how to so this patchwork, so I had to try it of course lol. I had an owl challenge and couldnt decide which of these Inkadinkadoo owl stamps to use. So the small one is only about an inch square. I had saw a button tutorial and I didnt have the correct products to make it just like hers so I just used my hole punch to punch out the owls after I stamped them. Then I stacked them onto 4 more circles, gluing each one with mono, then put holes in it with my Tim Holtz pokey thing lol. Then I glossy accented the heck out of it. When it dried I threaded some embroidery thread thru the holes. I made the patchwork frame, then stamped my other owl and just cut around it and glued it onto the patchwork. I used a white gel pen to make stitch marks. I think this will be a great mans card, my husband loved it lol.
