Country Charm

Remember I said I got new rubbah!!

Here's a 5x5 card done with Primitive Beginnings from The Rummage Bin at Cornish Heritage Farms.

I started off by making a mask of the house - stamping on a post it note so the bottom of the house was on the edge of the sticky part, and cut it out.

Since I already had a layout in mind, (CPS#50) I stamped the house high on the right, masked it and stamped the rolling hills and trees....then peeled off the mask and voila!, my house looks like it's in this peaceful country setting!

The front looks so different from the start of the card! I should have taken a picture so you could see the transformation! It's totally white cardstock, sponged with distress inks. The oval is a light creamy yellow sponged with dried marigold and faded jeans is sponged on the sentiment....which leads me to the sheep!

Mr Sheep kinda got in the way of the dauber whilst sponging, so I stamped him again, cut him out and popped him on a dimentional. Since he was already stamped on the sign I only had to cut out his body, leaving those tiny little legs behind *wink*. The sentiment is also popped on foam mounting tape.

I stamped 3 sheep on my card and 3 more on a scrap, cut out their bodies and placed them on adhesive dots (2 paper thin ones together so they're just barely raised off the paper)...again leaving their little legs behind.

Oh yeah, and I doodled around the oval too and stamped part of another sentiment, inking only the flourish part. And I did my faux layering again using a copic marker.

Hey, if you've made it this far, thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Love the cards you're making with this set Dawn. The semi-sheer ribbon on this one is a great touch - looks fab!
