This weekend I went for a short trek after very long and feel really kicked up after that….a whole lot of mountain ranges, un-ending green grass with grazing herds, beautiful lakes and valleys, I mean my eyes refused to believe the earth is not a flat stretch of land!!! Feeling refreshed and inspired to make this one right here.
In my last post I shared quick 60 second technique to create water color backgrounds.. For this card I used one of those landscapes I created. I trimmed it down to fit into this card stock.
To create a frame effect for my card, I cut out strips of patterned paper and stuck it around. Then I pasted the watercolor landscape.
I sketched this crazy cow with my drawing pencils first and finally with copic markers and colored the cow patches with Faber Castell water color pencils. These are great to work with as they allow you to color intricate details.
Next, I cut out the head of the cow (yikes…sounds terrible!) and sketched a little black patch to fill that area with my marker.....and pasted this on the created card frame.
Next I took a medicine bottle cap to create the cow’s neck, stuck it and pasted the cow's head on it (intentionally with a slight tilt). The black patch behind the head serves as a shadow and a patch, depending from where you are seeing it.
I created a removable tag, to put around the cow’s neck. Once again I used the strips of PP and added a hand written sentiment “Grazy about you”…..(I love playing with words!)
My card is ready.
