Cycling Cow

I've had this image in my stash for ages and kept looking at it and putting it back - that is until now when I've decided to use it as I'd found the perfect papers to use it with! I've coloured it with Promarkers and the papers are from Funky Hand - Rainbow Polkadots download. The ribbon is actually from the Scrap Store and is a strip of velvet which I've layered onto black card and then some more spotty card.

The flower is from my stash and I've made the swirly centre from fimo. I've also added the banners as the card looked a little bare at the top! Some inking around the edges and faux stitching and my card is complete!

It fits the following challenges:

Eat, Sleep, Stamp challenge: Sketch (below)
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Doodlebug - Stitching
Penny Black at Allsorts: Favourite Stamp
CCEE Stampers: Cow
Digital Tuesday: Animal Friends

  • Image: Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: Rainbow Polkadot download from Funky Hand
  • Everything else: My stash
