Happy Birthday to Moo! and The Girl at the Gate

Happy Birthday to Moo! Is my entry for the SCS CC152 – It’s a colour challenge, using Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue and Real Red, its even more of a challenge as these colours are Stampin Up! Colours, none of which I own, so I had a real close look at the fantastic entries and found as close a match as I could.

I also did the DCM Midweek challenge A little Extra Doodling, I added some faux stitching, but I also paper pricked the hole for some of the stitching and that is something that I have done before, but its something I will do again as I really like the effect.

I stamped the cow on white cardstock with Brilliance Graphite Ink and then coloured the image in using copics. (its not great but I am still learning!), I cut the image out using my Cuttlebug and small scallop Nestabilites die. I then used the same size die but the normal scallop on a blue card stock, which I mounted the image onto.

I cut out two stripes of card, one in muted yellow and the other the same blue I had used previously, faux stitching added, some pin pricking, and the edges inked with Mediterranean Blue Brilliance ink. I wrote Happy Birthday to Moo! Free hand and mounted onto the base cardstock which is red. I assembled all the pieces and added a final touch of bling with coordinating gems.

The stamp is from Dimensions Fourth
The cardstock in Kanban
The Gems are Papermania

The copics, and Nestabilites can be bought at numerous web sites.

The Girl at the Gate

The Girl at the Gate is stamped using Graphite Black by Brilliance onto white cardstock, coloured in using Prisma Colour Pencils, baby oil and prisma markers, mounted on some pale blue cardstock, then some forest green cardstock. The base card is a pearlescent gold, and a final touch is a dark green ribbon.

The stamp is from Ibrakeforstamps
The cardstock in Kanban and Craftworks
The ribbon is from a haberdashery department
The prisma pencils and markers can be bought at numerous web sites.
