TT88 New Life - Li'l Lambs with Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps
Hi and welcome!
It's time for another Tuesday Throwdown challenge. This week's theme is "New Life" and our sponsor is "Robyn's Fetish" Digital Stamps. I have used the adorable little "Lily Lamb" digital image on my card.
After downloading sweet Lily Lamb, I duplicated and resized it and flipped the smaller image 180 degrees so that the lambs are now facing each other.
I used my Spellbinders Labels 8 nestabilities to create a background panel for my lambs. With the cardstock still in the die, I sponged the top two thirds of the panel using Memento Sky Blue ink which left a nice neat white border around the edge. I then stamped some green grass and heat embossed some little white flowers for interest.
For the grass, I took some green felt and snipped a fringe along the edge with some scissors and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Labels 8 die so that it would fit nicely along the bottom of the central panel.
The little lambs are coloured very simply using Copic markers - I also went in with my Versarmark pen so that I could gold 'heat' emboss those sweet bells on their collars to make them appear metallic.
The background consists of some lilac cardstock which I have dry embossed for a little added interest using a plaid embossing folder by Sizzix and some MME patterned paper from the 'Happier' collection. There is some stitching on those panels which is a little hard to see from the photos.
As a finishing touch, I added some aqua double-faced satin ribbon from my stash, a little sculpture flower by Prima and some sweet paper flowers to the top right hand corner.
I decided to use the brilliant "Sweet Stop Sketch - SSS148" for the layout of this card.
