I Have Minions!

Just a quick post from me this morning with something you're either going to love or loathe, depending on whether you're into the films Despicable Me! and now Despicable Me 2!
My starting point was this week's sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches and I have tweaked it a little, although I'm sure you can still see the sketch

 I saw these minions, made using the Owl Punch, on the internet and had to try it out.  We're minion crazy in our house!

 The central grey shape is cut by hand and is the logo of Gru 'the world's greatest villan'! A fun card for a fan of the film, the hardest part is getting the silver 'goggles' right, tried several techniques best one seems to be paint on silver circles before adding the googly eye or eyes.
Do check out the cards from the other girls on the DT over at the blog.
Happy Crafting!

  4. I have to admit I haven't seen either movie, but I do think your little minions turned out adorably! Your card made me smile, and I bet it will have the same effect on the lucky person who receives it.
