CIC 501 | Hay There | On The Farm

I hope you all had fun with our 500th challenge celebration. Make sure to check the winners post to see if you were one of our lucky winners or Top Picks. We now have a new challenge, which we hope you’ll play along with too. (This challenge actually started yesterday, I’m a bit late with this post!) Our new theme is On The Farm.

I decided to keep things very simple for my card as I’m still trying to rest my wrist. I started by stamping the baby goat and a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps’ Way To Goat stamp set directly onto my white card base using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid ink. I also stamped the goat on to a piece of scrap paper which I then fussy cut and turned into a mask by applying Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to the back.

Once the mask was tacky rather than sticky I applied it over the goat on the card base. I also used a piece of post it tape to mask off the bottom of my card at an angle. I ink blended above the masked line with a light layer of Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide to create a hint of sky. I then repositioned the post it tape to ink blend the ground, for which I used Lucky Clover Distress Oxide. I blended it more heavily directly under the goat to give the look of a shadow.

With the ink blending completed I removed my masks. I then used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to colour in the goat. I decided to colour it as a white goat, as that would mean I only needed to lay in the shadow areas and blend out to white, which was much easier on my hand than colouring a darker colour. I also used a very light grey to enhance the shadow under the goat.

As I said I did leave this card very simple, I think it’s cute though. The little goat is adorable. I hope I will get more use out of this stamp set soon! Fingers crossed my wrist will be feeling better enough to start making more intricate cards before too long.
