Punch It!

Today's challenge was a challenge for sure!  Today's challenge was punch art - we were to create a project using punch art.  I thought and thought on this for days!  Finally, a scarecrow popped into my head. Don't ask me why!

Anyway, I sat down and this is what I created - he was too big for a card, so I decided to stick him in a shadowbox and put some haystacks next to him.  I think I'll put him out in the Fall as a decoration!

I used the Bohemian DSP for the hat, clothes, and patches.  I used Delightful Dijon for the hay, cutting it with my Fringe Scissors and then running it through a crimper.

Face:  Naturals Ivory cardstock punched out using 1 1/2" circle punch

Eyes:  Black cardstock punched out using the tear drop shape from the Tree Builder punch and then putting pearls inside

Nose:  Tangelo Twist cardstock punched out using Tree punch - very tip

Cheeks:  Blushing Bride punched out from Owl Builder punch

Overalls - Bohemian DSP punched out from Note Tag Punch and Tree Punch

Hat - Bohemian DSP punched out from Oval Punch (and folded over) and Tree Punch

Patches - Bohemian DSP just cut with scissors

Smile - SU! Black marker drawn by hand :)

I'll probably open it back up and have him hold a banner in the Fall.  But for now, he is done!

Thanks for looking and check out the other Sisters In Stamping Punch Art projects here.

Have a great weekend!
