Primitive Thank “Ewe” Card
The sheep image I used for this project is from the Gina K Designs “Primitive Blessings” set, and the greeting is from the Gina K Designs “Fleece Navi-baa” set. Card stock used is Gina K kraft, cranberry tart and black. Inks used are Gina K kraft, warm cocoa, and in the navy, Memento tuxedo black and desert sand, and Tim Holtz aged mahogany and walnut stain distress inks. Copic markers used are R59 and E59.
The star was cut with a Sizzix Bigz die called Star, Primitive #2 which I cut with my Cuttlebug (using the die and 2 “b” plates). I rubbed Tim Holtz aged mahogany distress ink directly from the ink pad onto the card stock and then sponged more on the edges.
The berries were originally white (part of a small rose piece that I found in the wedding aisle at AC Moore). I removed the berries and air brushed them with my Copic Airbrush System and Copic Markers R59 and then E59. I added these to the jute and moss embellishment.
The “wood” background panel is kraft card stock, scored every 3/4 of an inch and inked with Gina K kraft ink. Once it was dry, I went over the panel lightly and sparingly with Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink. I sponged this on the edges as well. It was then matted with black card stock.
The sheep was stamped with Gina K in the navy ink on kraft card stock. He was then masked so I could sponge on the background with Gina K warm cocoa ink on the bottom and Memento desert sand on the top. The red on the flag is copic R59. For the frame, I used 2 Spellbinders classic rectangles (large) dies and then needed to trim the edges slightly so it would fit on the card. The frame was inked first with walnut stain ink directly from the pad, and then sponged around the edges inside and out. Then I went over the whole frame with Gina K warm cocoa ink with a sponge. The sheep was cut to fit behind the frame and adhered with pop dots.
A scrap of kraft card stock was sponged with Gina K warm cocoa ink. The greeting was then stamped in Memento tuxedo black. The tag is a Heartfelt Creations die from a set called Decorative Flower Pot (HCD 732). Once it was cut, I inked the edges with walnut stain ink and pinned it to the ribbon.
The card base is kraft sponged with warm cocoa ink and finished with walnut stain on the edges.
This card is being entered in the StampTV MIUM “Critter Card” Challenge where we are to use a critter of any kind … if it flies, flutters, hops, walks or swims, it’s usable. My critter is a sheep that walks! (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)
This card is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Finishing Touch where we are to finish off our project with a stamp. I finished my project with my greeting stamped on a mini tag and pinned to my ribbon. (http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/?p=1935)
