Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #32 Around the farm

Its Friday so that means its time for another challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges!  This week the challenge is "Around the farm".  Here is what I came up with:

When I went to work on this project I realized I didn't have a farm or farm animal related stamp set or paper to use.  Luckily for me, however, I had won a few digital images from Crafty Sentiments a few weeks back, and had chosen this image called "MoMo", partially because she's cute, partially because that happens to be what I call my son from time to time (not really sure why, lol).

Once I coloured her I trimmed and corner rounded the card stock.  I masked the image and sprayed various shads of mists, then chose coordinating card stock and patterns.  I originally had the card laid out without any washi tape, but I felt something more was needed and this yellow tape works perfectly. Once I adhered the pieces for the main panel I added ribbon and adhered the panel to the card front.  I made a faux bow, added a flower, and adhered the image over the ribbon with foam squares.  Adhering the sentiment was the last step.

Well, almost the last step. I wasn't happy with how I coloured the MoMo's bell so I added some Sakura glitter pen over the top.  I wasn't expecting it, but the alcohol ink bled into the clear glitter ink and tinted the glitter purple and gold.  I wasn't expecting it but I think its so pretty!

I kept the inside simple with a piece of white trimmed with a leftover scrap of pattern paper.

Now its your turn! This week's prize is a $5 gift certificate from Clear Dollar Stamps.
