Field of Goats Card

Hello there! Today I have a simple slimline with 2 techniques that I have wanted to try forever.  Today's slimline card is heavily influenced by a card that Nicky Meek  @nickynoocards made using the Miss Ink Stamp Punny Farm Pigs stamp last year; her cards are absolutely stunning! I also incorporated a technique using an in-laid alpha sentiment as part of the slimline scene using the new Scene Builder Meadow stamp- I have always wanted to try that as well!

I stamped the background scene on 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock and then placed the alpha dies (Trinity Stamps) on top- it took me a little while to figure out where I wanted the sentiment!  Then I die cut the sentiment into the scene and ink blended speckled egg distress oxide lightly onto the outer portion of the card panel, as shown below.

I die cut 3 letters for each letter in the sentiment (15 letters total) and glued them together so that each final letter consists of 4 layers.  I did simple copic coloring with G43 and B0000 to just softy make the hello sentiment part of the scene before gluing it onto the card.

I decided that the card did need a border to tie everything together, as Nicky Meek had done in her card, so I ink blended a simple border that was die cut and fussy cut with a die from Trinity Stamps (Slimline Series Lift The Flap) with speckled egg distress ink.  I stamped and die cut the goats & letter from the Punny Farm Goats stamp set with my Brother Cut-n-Scan2 and then did simple coloring with W0 and W3 copics.  Not trusting myself to create a letter in flight, I used a stitched die from Lawn Fawn to create a little more interest in the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
