Card Patterns #154

A second post for today, my card for this week’s Card Patterns sketch. This week we are sponsored by My Favorite Things, and I played around with several fun stamps and dies. Here’s the fabulous sketch designed by Michelle:

And here’s my card:

The adorable sheep was stamped with Versafine on watercolour paper and clear embossed. Then I painted it with watercolours. To get the texture on the pants, I dotted a piece of tissue on the paint before it dried. The background was done with the watercolour and cling wrap technique I described in this post. I wanted it to look as if the sheep was sitting in a field of grass, so I mixed some sunny, yellow green paint. The grass was die cut from a darker piece.

I have wanted a speech bubble die for a long time, so I was happy to get this one. I inked it a bit before stamping the sentiment. A piece of white cardstock was inked with Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar Distress Ink and the flower was die cut from it. The pink background piece was cut from the same cardstock. The flower was stamped repeatedly with a small dot stamp from the By the Numbers set, and the background piece with a music note stamp. Love those tiny music notes. The background is a piece of dry embossed and sanded Core’dinations paper.
