Uncle Derek's 70th Birthday

This card is for my Uncle's 70th Birthday - he lives out in the countryside so I thought this Funny Farm stamp from High Hopes would be perfect.

For some reason my photo came out a bit 'glary' - I'd outlined my image with a pale blue copic marker and also used it to highlight the sheep's wool but it doesn't show up at all in the photo. Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Wink of Stella added to highlights on the chicken's comb, cow bell and '70', and then clear gloss added to the animals hooves and the '70' again so it really stands out.
