It is a card for a friend and ex-work colleague and I knew she wouldn't really appreciate anything 'arty' with lots of inking and stamping so I decided to try and do something just a mite 'chuckly'. The stamps are two by Penny Black that I got from the Paper Mill Shop last week and I stamped the first sheep, once onto semi-gloss card and once onto masking tape. When it was dry I masked it out and stamped the second sheep. I then added just touches of colour from some Adirondack inkpads and coloured the sheep in with a Sakura Souffle white pen. I gave it 2 coats using a circular motion to make the surface a bit rough and 'woolly' looking. I then cut out the image and a scalloped mat using my Nesties.
For the rest of the embellishments I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch, some little flower punches that have been languishing at the back of a drawer for ages, my Swiss Dots CB folder and some peeloffs that I colour co-ordinated with permanent markers. I just used scraps of paper from my bit box (how good am I?) for the little flowers, inked the edges of the larger petals, layered them and added blobs of Stickles in the middle.
When I'd finished I was chuffed to bits with it and it was a big hit with my friend when I gave it to her yesterday.
