Baa Baa Black Sheep

Welcome

This card was designed for a two year old's birthday - the wee lad lives on a farm, and hopefully he will like the card.


I started by stamping and masking the sentiment, the two featured sheep, then continued with the rest of the flock, masking as I went. 
(The stamp appears to have been discontinued)


The sheep were coloured using prismacolor pencils, using small circles to mimic the wool.  I did not colour the faces of the black sheep, (other than the nose) just letting the kraft card show through.


I painted in the embossed sentiment with Inca Gold gold paste, applied with a wet paint brush.


this photograph shows the gleam it has.


I finished the inside of the card by stamping two sheep inside.

Hello dear Maxine,

First of all I am so glad that you come and visit me. I love your comments - right from your heart.

This is a SUPERB card and how clever to make so many sheep... it looks lovely, cuddly and cute. The wee boy will love it. How lucky to live on a farm. The sentiment looks nice too and so does the inside.

Love,

Monica
