My inspiration for this card were the French country prints that adorn the walls of one of my favorite local breakfast cafes.
On the Farm CMS303
I began by stamping the text stamp and log book stamp unmounted so that just bits of the stamp touched the paper. In doing it this way all over a piece of Distress Multi Media Heavystock paper I formed a collage background. I did all this Stamping in a brown Distress Ink. Then went over the entire background with Antique Linen Distress Ink and a blending tool.
I stamped the sheep in Black Soot Archival Ink and dried it. Then I watercolored the wool on the sheep and dabbed it dry with a clean cloth. I did this a couple of times and it turned an interesting white. I found that to be a serendipitous result and left it.
Rosette and Floret CMS279 then spritzed lightly with water and stamped it onto Ranger Black Cardstock. Then I cut it into a frame shape using dies.
