S&D Challenge #2 – For the Birds

Welcome to the blog challenge from the Sunflowers & Dragonflies DT! This week’s challenge is to create a card or project using a bird. Anyone can play along in the challenge and we hope you will! There are no limits on time or supplies. Of course we’d prefer that you use images by Sunflowers and Dragonflies, but feel free to use other images. Please post a direct link to your challenge project from either your blog or an online gallery so we can view it. If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword S&D2 (add challenge # after S&D). Please check out the challenge projects below from each of our DT members and click on their blog links to find details about each specific project.


My card uses the “Owl” stamp, which can be used in many ways.  It is a great stamp for Halloween, don’t you think?  Inspiration for this acrylic painting came from art by Blonde Blythe. The image and background were painted with acrylic paints, directly onto cardstock.  Warping did not happen because I added little to no water.

This week the design team really mixed things up for you. Details for each project can be found by following the links to their blogs.

Kim created a 4 x 4 card with the Owl stamp


Beth made a scrapbook page with Canada Goose Standing.


Jennifer made a card with the Owl stamp.


Thank you for visiting.

You have until next Friday, at noon, to get your challenge finished and linked back for me to see.  Good luck!

All bird stamps are 20% off until next Saturday.  Simply put SD Challenge 2 in the comment section at check out time.  The 20% discount for the stamp will appear when you are billed for actual shipping cost of your order.

We hope you enjoyed our challenge.  The winner of our challenge will be randomly selected so everyone has an equal opportunity to win.
