Holy Cow

I wish I had a sentiment that said Holy Cow it's your birthday. Wouldn't that be funny? I found this sketch over on Heather's blog. Cool layout, huh? My image is stamped on Whisper White with Palette Noir. I tried something new for coloring. I used the Koh-i-noor woodless pencils and a stump dipped in Odorless Mineral Spirits to blend it. I definitely need some practice because I over blended, but not too shabby for my first try. I'm anxious to practice some more. F.Y.I. you can find these pencils (a set of 24) at Michael's and Hobby Lobby for $15. Meaning you can use a 40% coupon with that. Score! To finish off the image, I added some Stardust Stickles to the waves and some black brads in the corners. The red cardstock is stamped with the cow spots from the same set. I can't seem to make a card using the An'udder Birthday set, without using these spots. I just love them. Thanks for stoppin' by!!!

Stamps: An'udder Birthday (TAC, T-2642), Wishing You (TAC, T-1205)
Paper: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, Real Red
Ink: Palette Noir (TAC,TT-220)
Other: Koh-i-noor woodless pencils, OMS, Stardust Stickles, black brads, ribbon from Hobby Lobby
