Just for Ewe

I thought I would experiment with using background papers to suggest scenery.  It was a lot of fun and easier than I thought it would be.  I am quite pleased with the result.  I found it easier to use mainly one colour (soft blue) to work out what went well with what and then coloured the image after I had made the background.  The papers and the stamped image were all digital ones from Pink Petticoat.  I especially like the ribbon stripes papers which I have used on cards for any age or occasion and for both genders. 

I really like the example cards on Pink Petticoat.  They look simple until you try to replicate them and then you realise how complex and clever they are
There is a really good bow tying tutorial by one of the Pink Petticoat design team that has inspired me to practise.

I have entered this card in the Daisy Doodles #18 Challenge Critter Mad.

It makes it so much easier to pick the papers before you color...right? Lovely card, you did absolutely perfect with the whole 'scene' thing.
