Cow cards

Well it's raining yet again, but we had a lovely summery morning at Ballycastle beach (pic below) ... I couldn't believe how few people were on it!  :)  I'm off now for a week yippee, so it was a nice start to my hols to get a paddle and an ice cream in the sunshine!

I was lucky to win one of the MFT challenges recently so I picked this set as my prize ... The Whole Herd.  I love that cow's slightly surprised expression!

Card 1:

I masked off my cow a couple of times to make this crowd scene and used my Dienamics photo die.  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Silver sequins from stash.  Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Card 2:

I used my MFT stencil to make a cow print background.  Cow coloured with watercolour pencils and Wink of Stella added to the pink on his face, and then popped up on dimensionals.    I always love a googly eye :)






Beautiful Ballycastle, Co Antrim ...

The beach looks heavenly! Love your cow cards, too, and I couldn't agree more - googly eyes always add a bit of fun. I won three cow stamps a few months ago, and I need to get them out again. There's just something fun about cows. :)

Great fun, I've also got this set but haven't had chance to use it yet. The beach looks lovely... i've always wanted to visit ireland as my parents holidayed there before I was born and have so many great stories to tell about their trips, Jo x
