Here we go!
What A Hoot Stamp of the Month with CTMH Scaredy Cat #Paper piecing #CTMH Thistle Ink
I paper pieced this little owl using the Scaredy Cat paper that will be available tomorrow August 1st! This is a Halloween paper pack but I think this cute little owl is ready for a party of any kind. 
Paper piecing was super simple because each piece was its own stamp!  Hint:  Don’t cut out the legs, simply stamp them and a little bit of the body on the base paper.  From there, layer upwards!  Everything was stamped in black ink. 1 single ink pad.  Crazy simple!
I drew a little border around the card using my wonderful journaling pen that I purchased from CTMH.  It takes a light hand but I love it because it looks best if you’re not perfect!
