I hope you are all well and life is treating you kindly.
Another quick post to share a scenic card. I was thinking this card could be for birthdays, retirements, fathers day, mothers day, happy new home or even happy sheep day.
All occasions really.
I wanted a water colour effect with this. However, my painting skills are slightly dubious. Jodi , if you are calling in, I think I need some water colour painting tips from you!!! 🙂
So, with my lack of painting skills, I decided on my much favoured “splash it about and hope for the best” technique.
Loving these sheep!
I stamped the house, the sheep and the flowers onto thick water colour paper, using a black permanent ink and masked the stamped images using a liquid mask.
I then tapped some green (Peeled Paint) Distress Ink onto an acrylic block, spritzed it with water and dragged just the bottom 2/3s of the card into the diluted ink. I did this twice for the green ink and let the ink run to form shadows in the bottom corner.
When the green ink was dry, I coloured the top of the card in the same way but this time using light blue (Stormy Sky) Distress Ink and then left it to dry.
I peeled off the masks and coloured the houses and the wall and the little flowers with diluted DIs and a paint brush.
To finish off the card, I stamped some little birds in the sky and mat and layered as seen.

Just to share three photos taken this morning whilst I was having my cuppa. A lot of these sheep have bells on them so they tinkle away all day.
Two little lambs.
More woolly jumpers
Thank you for looking.
