Holy Cow!!

Hi there!  I’ve had a number of digital stamp packs from AMB Illustrations for quite some time now, and it was time to put some to use!  I used both the Farm Animal Faces and the Farm Animals sets with this card.  I had this (not so) bright idea to merge the cow heads on the “O’s” of the sentiment….cool huh?? Not!! Those suckers were smaller than the end of my Copic lid!!! Fun times, coloring them!! LOL  I still love the effect, though 🙂  I cut the sentiment out with a stitched square die and put it aside until I was done the rest.  For the background, I merged the full cow body onto some cow print digital background paper.  After coloring it with Copics and SNs, I outlined it with a white gel pen to give it a bit more definition.  This, I matted with a piece of white, that I’d run over the edges with a sewing tracing wheel (as I don’t have a stitched die that size, and wanted the stitching effect to carry through).  After adhering the sentiment, I decided to go with no embellishments, and leave it CAS.  The inside of the card says “you’re THAT old?”

I’d like to enter this in the following:
