Some new punch art???

I was definitely in the mood tonight to sit and create some punch art - I used the colours in the inspiration card from Pals Paper Arts and the challenge over at Stampin' Royalty which is Spring has sprung for the main ideas of my card. I  also had an address book in my stampin room that was the inspiration behind this French looking urn - can you guess the 3 punches I used to create the actual urn??

The bowl of the urn I used the owl punch, chopped off of the ears and feet, and slimmed down the sides, the stem is made from the cupcake punch and slimmed down, and the base is used from the 1 1/4" punch.
I also used the spring blossoms punch to create the leaves for the base of the flowers.  The little fancy bits on the side of each urn were just hand cut.

I used the rock n roll technique on the flowers in the urn and the Fleur De lis symbol.

I coloured the urn with a variety of colours and used the white gel pen for all the highlights.

I created my own crinkle ribbon using a white seam binding and colouring with my reinkers and a spritz or two of water - and don't forget the heat gun :).
