DARING CARDMAKERS - OLD MAC DONALDS FARM


Hello all, hope you are all well, and looking forward to the weekend... almost there! I have a few posts, and will start off with a card for Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Old Mac Donald's Farm - get some farmyard animals on your cards. I have chosen a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp called I Love Ewe, and have used Sukura Gel pens to colour in their faces and legs. The wool of the sheep was simply done by placing drops of glue onto each swirl, and then covering them with crystal glitter, allowing for a little texture at the same time. The image was then cut with a Label nesty, and layered on black and white card. The white layer of card was also run through a Cuttlebug "Swirls" Embossing Folder. The backing paper is from my paper pack simply named Allsorts. The card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment cut with a Tag nesty, some tartan ribbon, three red gems, some black and white brads, a little red heart gem, and finally two red spotty brads, all from my craft stash.
