Can you tell that I’m pining for warmer weather? Breezy warm days of spring is my idea of paradise. I drew up this little “Spring Lamb“ digi hoping this might be something folks could enjoy using for spring or Easter cards. Let’s celebrate spring, and hopefully it will get warmer soon! BTW, it is the lunar new year today so Happy New Year!
The 4″ x 6″ card I made is for a challenge hosted by a wonderful crafty friend, Anny (YT: StargrlAnny) who is celebrating 2 years on YouTube. Woot woot! She was very open to whatever we wanted to make in terms of style but wanted us to put our YT name on the front so that she could at-a-glance know who made which card, as she is going to use it as a kind of Roladex system/mini album. Because I didn’t want my YT name to take center stage, I used a pale wood grained Amy Tangerine textured Thickers from American Crafts called “Muse.”
I used some spring green colored gingham print paper that I have had in my stash for over a decade for the base. Then I used some scraps that I had left over from a paper from the Dear Lizzy Neopolitan collection for the background. To add a little fun and a tiny bit of dimension (Anny didn’t want a lot since she is planning to put these into plastic sleeves), I fussy cut out a lot of flowers from that patterned paper and popped them up on foam adhesive. For a little sparkle, I also used different colored Stickles and glitter glue around some of the flowers.
For the little lamb, I used the following Copic colors and used a dotting technique to give a sense of wooly texture: E000, E31, W1 (for the shadow), and RV000 (for the inner ear area). I used some Glossy Accents on the lamb’s eyes, nose and hooves to add a little visual shine.
