TT88 New Life - Li'l Lambs with Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps

TT88 Robyn's Fetish New Life

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.

An adorable card just love those little lambs....thank you for joining in our challenge over at St Lukes


Yolanda said...

This card is completely fabulous! I thought the grass was Flower Soft and am thrilled to find it is felt. It gives it such a wonderful texture. My favorite thing is the resizing and flipping of the lamb to get the baby lamb. That's the beauty of digi stamps!

This is such a cute springtime card! I think what I love most about it is that the lambs remind me of old-fashioned children's books.
