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.
