My fellow Funky Hand DT mate Carol who is wonderfully apt at creating great sketches, has launched her own dedicated challenge blog! Its on a bi Monday rotation so it gives me plenty of time to get my act together and join in!

The first sketch on her new blog (well, actually it is challenge 7 as the 6 previous ones were on her own blog) is this: And here is what I've come up with! The cow is a new Sizzix die which I have cut 3 times in pink, black and white and then layered the relevant bits. I've added a tiny bit of doodling around the black splodges on the cow (there is bound to be a technical term for it, but splodges it will have to be for now!) and I've also chalked it too for definition. The bell has been cut from very shiny silver card and I've added a twine string bow and wobbly eyes.

I've hand cut the grass in two layers and also chalked this a little. Both the grass and backing paper are from Funky Daze the Son Day collection (I do seem to be using this one quite a lot at the moment!) sentiment has been cut with my lovely Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet dies. And to finish off the sketch, I've used card candy from Craftwork Cards.
