Down on the Farm...

This week at For Fun Challenges, we are down on the farm (one of my favourite James Blundell songs).... with a  FARM ANIMAL themed challenge for you.  

Our sponsor is the super fabulous Bugaboo Stamps... and they have the most fabulous farm critters! It's always a pleasure to create with these images!  I am not ashamed to say that I love cows.  Always have.  I just had to create with the Bobble Head Cow image!

Ingredients: White Cardstock; Sanded Core-dinations card; Promarker Aqua (Sienna); Copic Ciao Marker; Stardust Glitter Pens; Black Glaze Pen; Pearls; Sticker Sentiment...

I printed the image twice.  I coloured parts of the image with a promarker (the brown) and glitter pen for the grass, metallic for the bell, and black glaze for the hooves. Her nose was coloured with a copic ciao marker.   I fussy cut her cowlick hair, nose, tail end and front hooves, and fixed them to the image base with foam tape. The browm matt layer is sanded Core-dinations card (love that stuff!) the same was also used for the sentiment, one piece sanded, the other was left neat.  All stuck together for a sweet birthday card .... gee I hope I know someone who loves cows too!

Entered into these challenges: The Squirrel and The Fox - #9 Critters
Birthday Sundaes - #40 Birthday (30/1)  Stamp N Doodle - Include an Animal (31/1)

We have some fabulous creations from our design team this week.... guaranteed to make you feel like you're on the farm.  I hope you'll stop by to the For Fun Challenge blog to grab some inspiration and join in our Farm Animal challenge!  Thanks for peepin'!
