I wanted to share a full card made with that Primitive Beginnings set that I tantalized you with the other night; I think I liked my CPS version a bit better, but this one pleased me too. These sheep are fun! They remind me of some collectible sheep that I saw in a gift shop in Pensacola once, back in my Florida decade. If you picked them up and turned them upside down, then would let out quite a convincing bleat. They came in different sizes and colors, and the different sizes all had different sounding bleats. (Yes, I stood there and turned them all upside down at least once. . .)
I stamped the grass line first (Versamagic Tea Leaves). Since I knew that I wanted to stamp my sheep on lighter cardstock and layer it, I didn't bother masking the sheep off; it didn't hurt to have a grass line running through them as long as it was covered by the vanilla layer. I stamped the large sheep next, then the smaller ones, leaving one set apart from the others to indicate that it had wandered away. The sheep are stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and the trees in Versamagic Jumbo Java, Tea Leaves, and Key Lime. The sentiment is stamped in a retired SU color, Cranberry Crisp, and the ribbon is a stitched Cranberry Crisp as well. I stamped the sentiment, then die cut it with a plain circle die. I used some Pebbles Shimmery Pastel Chalks to tint both the grass and the sky a bit, and I sewed a variety of stitches around the focal image when attaching it to the Prism Blush Red dark base.
Tomorrow I have a post of an entirely different flavor for you--sweet but non-caloric. . . Have a great day!
