Just for EWE

P1070246

I’m here to share a fun card I made this week for a friend.

When I saw this week’s challenge over at My Favourite Things, I decided I just had to play with their stamp set – Ewe Are the Best, which was one of my recent purchases.  I thought it would suit both their Sketch an Colour Challenges.  There are so many clever little images in this set.

To start, I stamped the simple horizon line onto a circle die cut and added some flowers and a tall tree image. These were then Distress water coloured.  The jumping sheep  was stamped on a separate piece, which was fussy cut after adding some light grey washes to give definition.

The strip for the base card was randomly stamped with the flowers and again Distress water coloured with a green wash.  A narrow strip was also water coloured and added to the panel before they were both added to the card along with the sentiment.

I then added the circle and the sheep on foam tape.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. I thought I had left a comment on your EWE card but alas – no so time to remedy that. Lovely colourful background. Love the sky and again colourful hill. Nice light clouds and ewe is perfect – colourful and so cute. I think I mentioned how ‘colourful’ this card is didn’t I Helen? Oh yes I did…
