Just For Ewe!

A friend who collects anything 'sheep' related has a birthday next week.  I saw this Crafter's Companion stamp a few months ago, which came with the sentiment, and knew it would be just perfect for her card.
Without thinking, I stamped the image with a Versafine ink pad.  Big mistake! I used Promarkers to colour in the image and it looked terrible....I mean, really terrible!  Then a light came on in my brain and I remembered that I should have used my Memento ink pad.  This isn't the first time I've done this, so my box of Promarkers now has a label on the lid 'Stamp with Memento!'.  So the stamped image went in the bin and I started again.  The embossing folder was a freebie with a craft magazine and I used a Die-namics 'Fresh Cut Grass' die with a snippet of green card to add a little colour across the middle.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  10. This is baatiful! Love it.
    I have a similar problem with Archivals unless I leave it for a day or so after stamping. I stick to Memento now.
