2 dogs and a sheep

Evening crafters!  Hope you're having a good weekend.  We ended up going for a scoot up the coast to Carnlough!  There's nothing nicer than fish'n chips at the seaside!  Wee Rubydoo is pooped after the excitement, she's lying here snoring her head off :)

I decided not to use a sentiment on my card and that 'bark' would be enough.
Stamps from Eat Cake Graphics...
3046-K Optimism (MMM Dogs)
8041-C Bark (text)
Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Spectrum Noir sparkle added to their collars and little pink jumper, and then clear gloss over the top of the sparkle.

My second card is a super quick CAS one ... though when you cost in the time I spent looking for the stamp I originally wanted to use, it maybe wasn't so quick after all!  Anyway, in my search I came across this cute little sheepie that I don't think I've ever inked.  
Not sure of the maker of the sheep, but the frame round the sheep is from Stamps by Judith - I managed to stamp my frame wonky, but sure that's noting new anyway ;)

I watercoloured the bg behind the sheep, and then splattered the green on my base too.  
Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the fleece, and then clear gloss to the head and hooves.  Bit of bling from my stash, a doodled border to match my frame and that's it!

  1. She's a very appealing little woolly sheep and very deserving to be stamped! Thanks for joining in the challenge at CC&S.

  6. Wonderful cards, love those cute dogs. I have a couple from the same company, wish I could afford the lot. The little dog makes me think of Jake (our fella) who thinks he is a big dog playing guard duty.

  19. Cute cards, Lynne! Those dogs just make me smile - and more so since "bark" is the sentiment. he he You could use that card for any occasion. I also admire your doodled borders. The always look so GOOD! I'm afraid if I tried it, they'd look like a three-year-old did them.

  21. I loe the sheep, it's adorable! And I like the double borders, they frame everything perfectly. The sentiment also works really well, by straddling both parts of the card. Thanks for joining us at CC&S this week. Caro x
