"Two Ewe"

Well, what a beautiful afternoon. Hope you are all enjoying this glorious weather. I know I am even though I'm stuck indoors it's lovely to look out and see the sun, even if it does show up the fact I really ought to go and clean the windows....

So to today's offering and it's the turn of Wild Rose stamp "Two Ewe". Coloured using Derwent Coloursoft pencils and blended with Sansodor. the nice thing with sheep is a bit of grey pencil just around the edges, a quick blend out and theyre done.

The green background paper is Basic Grey Oh Baby Ivy and the red one is Fancy Pants Wildheart Wild Iris. The border strip is an off cut from making the card blank of green stamped with several small flower stamps all over to create a contrasting pattern. Then the image layer was inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Shabby Shutters and the punched out quote inked with Distress Ink Worn Lipstick. Finally finishing off with some paper roses and Bee Crafty Blooms.

Thanks for looking.
