Silly moo!

Well this is my last post before I return to work tomorrow having had a lovely crafty week off, thanks mainly to the disastrous weather we have had this week here in the north west of England, but I have made the most of it lol.

I am entering my card into this weeks challenge over at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog where this weeks challenge is Ribbons & Bows. I also (a few posts back) set myself the challenge NOT to use vintage photo distress ink and on this card I have succeeded. I am also going to make my 2nd entry into the fortnightly challenge over at the Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is nature.

Sheena Douglass Silly Moo Rubber Stamp

Main image has been stamped using "Silly Moo" stamp by Sheena Douglas. I have coloured it with 3 tint colours of Pan Pastels, mostly pink. The cow in the foreground I have further coloured with the pink to intensify the colour slightly (photo doesn't really show the colour that well). I have then removed some of the main image to reveal the white card underneath, the great thing about pan pastels is that you can just rub it away with a normal cheap rubber/eraser. The crown I have coloured with promarkers to make it stand out. It has been matted and layered with black cardstock and pink silk art card. The ribbon is East of India pink gingham which I have double bowed (on a bow maker as I can't make bows without it) and finally finished off with pink candi.

thanks for looking
Happy crafting
Love Amanda X
