Looking At Ewe

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Lis aka Stampsnob who has joined my happy little following.  So glad to have you along.  

I was trying to put a few things away, a challenge in itself, when I decided I couldn't resist using those cute little sheep again.  I had been toying with an idea to make a pile of sheep, is two a pile? so after a couple of trial runs with masking I got to this......

I cut my ATC and stamped the big sheep, but not that bit where little sheep has his foot!  I masked and stamped little sheep and then the bird.  I coloured the animals with Promarkers.  Over at Wicked Wednesday the theme is stripes and I am still on County Fair for the Speedy Fox Challenge so I thought I would stand my pile of animals against a marquee.  A stripey marquee.  I masked all the animals and stamped Hero Arts Stripes Background in DI Barn Door and embossed with clear embossing powder.  This is a good trick cos if there is any stray powder the clear doesn't show as much as it would if I had embossed with red powder.  I wanted a pennant so I Memory Box Loop Border and some stripey DCWV paper.  I left all the negative cuts in place and added iridescent glitter glue and some red rhinestones.   I also added a blue shadow to give a bit of definition.  I've seen this done but I definately need practice!!  Then I realised the animals were levitating so I added a piece of green card cut round big sheep's feet, stamped some flowers and coloured them Galaxy Markers.  The sheep, bird and flowers all come from Nellie Snellen Ollie's Spring set
