Herd You Had a Birthday

Posted by on September 16, 2015 in Animals, Challenges, Happy Birthday Cards, My Favorite Things, Stamping | 11 comments



The MFT Superstar contest ends in a couple of days, so I thought I would throw my hat in the ring with this card. These cows are just the most adorable critters! I love their goofy expressions and when I added the googly eyes – well I just had to giggle! It is like they are saying ‘oooooohhhh’. They are coloured with Copics and a Memento marker (as I don’t own any black Copic markers – I’ll have to remedy that soon). The stencil is also from MFT and was sponged with black ink. The blue background was a scrap piece of water colouring that I had laying around.

My Dad would love this card. He is a farmer who has a really dry sense of humour and a punny sentiment is right up his alley. Well that is one birthday card made for next year!
