Sheep 3 ways!


 Hi Everyone, my card/s were influenced by Sally, as when I visited and saw this image, I had to have it. As you know and I keep telling you, I'm Welsh and we have a lot of sheep in Wales and the image had such a gorgeous look, I fell in love with it and it makes me smile too. 

Anyhow, when I stamped it, I had to see what it would be like on white and black card, so 3 very different cards for you. I went wild and you know? I like them all. 

The first one to show you is this new to me technique, if there is one, that I used. I stamped the sheep in black onto black card, then used watercolour pencils, which didn't come out bright enough, so I added a sheen and that brought the white up a bit. I actually liked it, so left it as it was. I added it to an green embossed wall background, as if he was in a sheep pen up in the mountains? I added a 3 layer sentiment on a plain banner die.

sheep - Woodware
embossing folder - Crafters Companion texture wall
sentiment and banner - Card Making Magic by Christina
colour - Nuvo Vibrant watercolour pencils
sheen - Lust Rub ons Craf-T Products
eye - Uniball gold glitter pen
highlight - Uniball white pen 

This one, I stamped and embossed onto white card, coloured with Distress inks, added a stencil to the Kraft card, which I shadowed as shown by Jennifer Mcguire. I stamped the "Happy" and cut the sentiment with the Cameo from black card adding gloss to the letters.  I had inspiration from CTS#66 sketch.

Distress inks -  Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Hickory Smoke
eye - Spectrum Noir marker
stencil - Ranger, Mag freebie 
happy stamp - mag freebie
baaaa-thday font - Fluffy Slacks
gloss - Nuvo Crystal Glaze

This one was stamped onto black card and embossed then, fluffy stuff added, I stamped the happy onto the card and cut the sentiment out on the Cameo adding gloss to the letters. I doodled with a fine line pen around the edge of the card in a similar design to the edge of the stamp.
embossing powder - Papermania Seafoam white
fluffy stuff - Cosmic Shimmer
happy stamp - Altenew mag freebie
baaaa-thday font - DS Snowman Kisses
gloss - Nuvo Crystal Glaze
fineliner pen 

I think #3 is my favourite only because of the fun fluffy stuff I think. However each makes me smile, so perhaps I haven't a favourite, their too different? Mojo went wild with these, I wonder if it will stay. LOL
Here they are together.

I knew that Mr. Mojo was hanging inside of you somewhere! lol I love all three of these cards, they are all so different looking as well as being unique! I can see why you fell in love with this image too. I think number 3 is my favorite (love the fluff), but really all three are unique and fun! So like you, how can you pick a favorite?!! Hugs, Brenda

Oh wow! You have done a fantastic job, Faith! Those are all really fabulous! I love them all. The first is like it would be at dusk, and you have coloured the second beautifully! I also love the third with it's texture. Sorry/not sorry that I enabled you to buy the stamp :D

Carol L said...

Your mojo is alive and thriving and this trio of cards is evidence! I just love the first one - the black on black look - it's fabulous and so unique and different! I like all three cards, but that happy Baaaa-thday sentiment just makes me smile. You are so clever :)

Rosemary said...

Wonderful set of cards, Faith! The Happy Baaa-thday sentiment is so fun!

Lisa Lynn said...

Faith just love how you did the variations of this adorable sheep. You are so talented my friend. Stay safe.

Vicky Hayes said...

I'm always amazed when someone has the patience to make lots of cards using the same stamps! My favourite is the second - I love the pale sheep against the kraft card stock. I grew up on a hill farm in Somerset so I'm drawn to sheep too! Vicky x

creationsnz said...

All amazing - I was trying to decide which was my fave, and couldn't do it! Wonderful techniques too, thanks for sharing your info on how you did them. And what a fabby stamp too. CarolG

NanaConnie said...

I dearly love all 3 sheep but the last one really appeals, Faith! Maybe that's because it looks so 'fluffy.' Love how you matched up the doodling between image and frame. Delightful touch. :-D

Mac Mable said...

What an adorable face that sheep has. Great designs, all three of them Faith x. You had me at 'Welsh' and I have never seen a sheep stamp like this before. Great to see how it looks on the black, the white and the kraft. Fun sentiment too and extra loving the fluffy one as the sheep looks extra happy x.
