CHALLENGE SFC0213 - DAISY THE HOLSTEIN COW
The Challenges at Squigglefly are always so much fun! This is one of the reasons I enjoy being on the Design Team with them. Helps lift my day for sure.
Rhonda came up with a beauty of a challenge this week. Here is Rhonda's required recipe:
1. use ribbon or twine
2. glitter (something sparkly)
3. a brad somewhere on the card
Daisy and Daphne are some of our new releases from last week by Fawn Palmer, a new artist with us. Daisy apparently is a Holstein or Ayrshire depending on your colors and Daphne could be a black Angus, brown Swiss or any solid colored breed. I paired Daisy with a stamp I've kept for years of an old barn in the background. I used a 6x6 to get ample space and pop dots to bring Daisy to the foreground! I accidentally printed Hay! a bit large so I just cut and embossed it on one of the new cuttlebug folders that do this. Coloring is of course with copics and distressing by liquid chalks.
The twine is wound around the top of the card; the brad is in Daisy's ear (ala Diamond Stud!) and the glitter is on the brad (in the ear). And please do remember that cows do have tags in their ears, and Daisy is UDDERLY REMARKABLE with her stud! PUN INTENDED! ;)
I chose to go a different route and rather than color the image, I printed the digi image in a royal blue so I could get a type of monochrome effect. I also did this for 4 other colors and acquired myself 12 new birthday cards very quickly. With the wishes on the front of the card, I can place a gift card inside with a sweet message from me.
Have an udderly fantastic day - go to Squigglefly's freebies or check out all the new artists' work, become a loyal follower and grab a great image. Maybe even color up a cow!
