This week the challenge at "The Sisterhood of Crafters" is "Animals!!
I had so many things to choose from it was mind boggling..lol!!
I decided to go with this super cute "Stacked Animal" stamp from Cottage Cuts.
I really wanted to use Copics on it, but I am still building up my "Copic" stash
and just didn't have enough colors to "shade" with..
So I choose to use my TH Distress markers and did a bit of water coloring!!
I added a bit of "Wink of Stella" here and there.
The edges were distressed and I sponged on some TH "Old Paper" ink.
Being farm animals and all, I decided gingham was in order, but once I pulled out
my lily bee design 6 x 6 Double Dutch paper pad with the gingham papers, it also
had this cute country looking paper in it with all these circles...perfect right....but
dang it, I ended up covering most of it anyhow and you can barely see it..lol!!
So I did end up using some gingham with my ribbon my brad, plus the little banner!!!
Inside I am putting a computer generated greeting:
"I hope your birthday stacks up to all you thought it would be".....
I hope you will pop on over to "The Sisterhood blog" and see what all the other "Sistah's"
have designed for you and join in the challenge with us!!!
