Ok, I tried something a little different on today's card. I wanted to use one of my new Penny Black stamps, but couldn't find the perfect pattern paper to go with it, then remembered the quilt squares I purchase a while back. This one seemed just perfect. So no pattern paper, just pretty fabric! I sewed down the square onto a black piece of card stock, and the placed that onto the red card base. I then matted the image and the sentiment "What's Moo?", from Cornish Heritage Stamps, with the same red and black. I did a blanket stitch around each of them. Ok, the sentiment was tough! But I still have all my fingertips. After attaching them with glue dots, had to make sure something would stick good to the fabric. I found three velour flowers to place on the bottom left corner. (Oh and I forgot to mention the image is colored in with my Copics - but you probably already knew that)
I spent so much time playing with this card, I didn't get to the card I had planned for Cute Card Thursday Blog. The theme this week is The Great Outdoors... then I figured, hey I don't know anyone that keeps their cows inside, they are always in the great outdoors so this one sort of fits.... I am going with that alright? But do check out their site and see some really great outdoor cards!
Ok it is bold and kind of bright, but I love how it turned out! My Sister who collects black and white cows will love this one!
Well gotta run right now... but I haven't forgotten the Blog Candy! This afternoon I will put the numbers to the Random.org site and get the winners and be back to post here! Still a little bit of time to get in to the drawing.... hurry.....
