Welcome to 2023 and our first blog hop of 2023! Happy New Year to everyone! Our blog challenge this month was a sketch.
As many of you know I grew up in Northern Ireland on a farm, and at times I miss the Friesian cows that my dad had on the farm. Somehow they made glorious photo in the green fields.
I decided to use the On the Farm stamp set from the mini catalogue. An added bonus to using this now was that I could get the Day at the Farm DSP for free from the Sale-a-bration catalogue this month. I used a strip of the DSP behind the main focal point of the card on the Pear Pizzaz base. The card was stamped in Memento Black ink and I used Blending Pens to colour in the cow and the trees – Old Olive, Black and Petal Pink The background and grass were stamped with stamps from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzaz.
This was layered onto the card using mini dimensionals and I added the sentiment in Memento Black from Something Fancy.
Inside the card I added a Basic White layer, I added some Balmy blue with a Blending brush and stamped the grass in Pear Pizzaz and the flowers from On the Farm that I coloured in with Mossy Meadow and Daffodil Delight.
I hope you enjoy this card as we look forward to lots of crafting in the year ahead!!
