Sheep over the hill - Blank (For Ewe) 144mm white square card - Day 142 of my 366 day challenge


Sheep over the hill - Blank (For Ewe) 144mm white square card - 
Day 142 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So for today's challenge, I have made this bright card using both a Tonic Studios die and some shapes that I have cut out using my Brother Scan n Cut.

 Sheep over the hill - Blank (For Ewe) 144mm white square card -

I had previously cut out a Tonic Studios semi circle - (unfortunately I can't find out which one it is) and had glued it to some black cardstock. As I was looking at it, I suddenly thought that it would make a great hill, especially if I coloured some of it using a green alcohol marker to make t look like some leaves and branches.

I then added some "Apple Green" Nuvo crystal drops to the white leaves to brighten it up a bit and left it to dry overnight though they don't take that long to dry!

I then placed it on to the 144m white card using some foam pads which raised it away from the card. I had cut out some of the sheep when I was using my Brother Scan n Cut and thought the outline version would make a fun addition to the card so glued that to the top of the hill.

I had also cut out some black circles and used one to make the sun (or it could be a flower if I added a stem)  by glueing it onto a paper flower shape and then stuck it to the top left hand corner and then some "Dandelion yellow" Nuvo crystal drops to it. 

 Sheep over the hill - Blank (For Ewe) 144mm white square card - for you
I wanted to add a sentiment - I had thought of "Happy birthday to Ewe" or "Thinking of ewe" but ended up amending a "For You" and used the "For U" instead. I still might make one with those - might try and use a stamp if there is one!













And there you are - a simple but fun card which you will be able to buy on my website once I have "perfected" it.
