Hi everyone! :o)
Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Cow Over the Moon Card.
For my card I used a super fun 'Cow Barely Over the Moon' digital image digital image. So cute and fun!! :o) And there are more cute cow images in the store. :o)
I was inspired with my own card I made last year for KBD, Bat About You Card, and went with same color scheme and similar design. :o)
I made a layout on my computer and printed it on a watercolor paper panel. I left the image dry through the night to prevent ink smearing.
To fill a bit a night sky I was going to create, I stamped couple stars from Jane's Doodles 'Read All About It' stamp set.
I colored everything in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks (DI). First I colored a blue background, covered images with paper towel pieces and splattered the background with DI Blueprint Sketch and with water. When I was satisfied with background I watercolored the cow and after the Moon and Stars.
After drying, I glued the panel on a white top folded card base and my card was finished. I didn't want to add anything else on the card, such as sentiment or embellishments. It's prettier this way. :o) I could go with one layer card, but I wanted to save a bit on a watercolor paper, as my watercolor paper stash decreased enormously. :o)
