Happy Birthday to Ewe


I didn't quite get time to join in with the MFT sketch challenge last week, so this week I'm making sure I get in early. So here's my interpretation of 
using the fantastic 
Birdie Brown 'Ewe are the Best' stamp set.
Most of you will know by know that I have a soft spot for a punny sentiment and you have several to choose with in this set as well as some great images. I coloured the little sheep with the party hat and ballon, with my zig clean colour pens.  I didn't buy the matching die set this time, but there is one available if you are not a fan of fussy cutting. I stamped him/her on my background too and coloured that in grey and cut the sheep and ballon out separately so that the string of the balloon is from the stamped image on the base card. I popped the sheep and ballon up on some foam tape and gave the hats a few white dots with a Posca marker and gave the ballon a coating of Wink of Stella.

So this is my take on the sketch, I mostly kept close to the original with a tweak here and there, adding another strip of patterned paper and using some sequins instead of the small banner and moving then to the other corner.

I created the background using a self made mask and my distress ink and blender. The colour I used was tumbled glass.
I stamped a sentiment from the set in black versafine ink and also MFT Razzle Berry dye ink.

I've listed everything I've used below, with links where available.

Smooth White Cardstock
Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper 
Versafine Ink Onyx Black
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
Stitched Circle Dies
Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins
Foam Tape

Don't forget that in the UK and Europe you can get all your MFT goodies at Dies to Die for.
I hope you like it. If you would like to see the original sketch and/or join in with the challenge, you can find it here.
