Party 'til the Cows Come Home

Hello Delightful Friends and Family,
Here's a cute card I made for a little guy's first birthday.  It's a farm theme so this stamp set from Taylored Expressions (Green Acres) was perfect to mask out a fun "on the farm" scene.

I will be sharing this at Seize the Birthday Challenge blog.

I've masked with Inkadinkadoo Stamp Masking Paper (love it!) and then used my MISTI to position and stamp each item in Memento Jet Black ink.  Then I colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment, clouds (die) and sun are all from different Taylored Expressions stamp and die sets.  The base is Desert Storm Neenah card stock and the one of the clouds was die cut from Vellum.  Inside the card says "Party 'til the cows come home" and I stamped the other "bovine" from the set.  I've not made a card with so many stamps in a scene but I really enjoyed the process and that Stamp Masking Paper was so helpful, I only needed to mask the tractor, cow and haystack,  Once I figured out the placement it was easy peasy!  I've also used Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a blender for the sky and to edge one of the clouds.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping!!

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.                                                                            1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)
