The Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week was the theme Animal Fun. So I chose to do a card with one of my favorite animals.......the Holstein cow. We had a dairy farm for over 25 years and although I was not that fond of the work involved, I did think some of the cows were nice looking and that their calves were really cute,
I dug out some older wood mounted stamps from Embossing Arts and used them for this card. And, I am glad to report that all of the images are still being made and are available at I Brake for Stamps.
I stamped the frame, cow and sentiment all in black. On the cow I added some Spectrum Noir Aqua markers and also a bit of Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen to the wings and to the halo. All were then cut out and layered to red card stock before I added them to the white card base.
I added a bit of the frame to the bottom of the inside too, so that both inside and outside were connected. I have not added a sentiment inside yet. I might have to think about what I will do for that and maybe eventually computer generate something. However I do it I hope the recipient gets a little chuckle from this cow card. I think it could be used for many occasions too!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have an udderly fine rest of the week too!
