Peekaboo Farm And A Welsh Lamb

by Joanne James14. April 2022 10:00

Today I'm sharing a card that was inspired by a few current clean and simple challenges:

       

Over at AAA Cards they are asking us to create a design that is both along the edge and represents your country. Since I am Welsh I considered daffodils, but settled on one of the other things that my homeland is famed for - take a look:

 

Yes, a Welsh lamb! Perfect for the animal challenge over at Addicted to CAS and the code word 'Fluffy' over at CASology too!

Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Welsh Lamb - The 'Peekaboo Farm' stamp set was perfect for today's card: I extended my brick wall to run along the edge of the base of my card, with the lamb peeking over the top. The eagle-eyed amongst you will see this is a slightly doctored image - the lamb in the stamp set has horns, but since I wanted the emphasis on 'fluffy' I thought I'd remove them. I fussy-cut my lamb, minus the horns, and popped him over the wall using a couple of glue dots:

 

Take 5 - This is a great #simplestamping card that uses only five key supplies: white cardstock, black ink, a stamp set and my watercolour pencils that I used dry - perfect for a beginner. I'm generally prefer my Blends markers for colouring as I like the more saturated colour they give, but since this is a (largely) one layer card, I went with pencils to avoid the issue of colour bleeding through to the reverse of my cardstock. On closer inspection I think my pencil blending needs a little work, but it was nevertheless fun to create - I might have to make another card to practice my technique!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:
