Love Ewe

Hello crafty friends!  I was able to make some more cards last weekend for World Card Making Day.  And I intend to make more this month to extend the celebration.  How many cards have you made so far???

Today I want to share with you a card I made for Unity's 2nd WCMD Challenge: "It's All About Texture".  I've always liked texture on my cards, and this challenge is just right for me.  Browsing through my Unity stamp collection, I decided to use the Love Ewe stamp set, so I can play with my white Popcorn Pen.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  leftovers
image/sentiment:  Unity "Love Ewe"
ink:  Stampin' Up, ColorBok, Copic, Tsukineko
tools:  Spellbinders, Stampin' Up punch, embossing folders (Stampin' Up, Sizzix), EK Success edge punch, Janome Sew Mini, Bazzil piercing template
embellishments:  pearls, Popcorn Pen by Kodomo, adhesive-backed fabric, yarn
misc.:  Ranger embossing powder
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape, Glue Dots

I embossed the sheep image first, then colored the face and feet with Copic markers.  After that, I colored the rest of the body with white Popcorn Pen, then blasted with a heat gun.  I just love that texture!

The Unity Blog has a lot of challenges in celebration of World Card Making Day.  I hope to be able to do all of them, and keep the creative juices flowing.

And speaking of challenges, this month's Oozak Challenge "Die Cuts" is still going on.  Guess what's in store?  One whole set of Ranger Distress Markers!  Head on to the Oozak Blog to submit your card.

'Til next blog!
