Mustache Man Punch Art

It seems that mustaches are all the rage lately, so I was excited to see the newest stamp set and die combo from My Creative Time.  The set is called What's Growing On?  It features a collection of fun greetings to go along with a coordinating die of different mustaches and a pair of glasses.

I instantly knew I wanted to create a fun punch art face.  I was elated to see that the glasses fit the 2-1/2" Circle perfectly!

To make the man, here are the pieces you need to punch out:
2-1/2" Circle from Pink Pirouette (head)
2 Wings from Bird Builder in Pink Pirouette (ears)
Small Oval in Pink Pirouette (nose)
(2) 3/4" Circles in white (eyes)
(2) 1/2" Circles in Baja Breeze (eyes)
(2) 3/8" Circles in black (from Itty Bitty Shapes) (eyes)


Die cut 2 mustaches from chocolate chip card stock.  Die cut glasses from black card stock.  Round out points on bird wings for ears.  Sponge edges of all pink pirouette pieces with Blushing Bride ink.  Sponge edges of blue eye pieces with Island Indigo ink.  Layer eye pieces and add highlights with unibal white gel pen. Add highlight to nose.

Glue glasses onto face.  Glue eyes into glasses.  Attach nose with dimensional.  Glue ears onto back of head. Glue mustache onto face, slipping under nose. Attach hair to head with dimensionals.  Draw line for mouth under mustache.

Head is attached to card using an Action Wobble Spring.  To see how these move, check out my blog post HERE.
