Sheep in the Meadow

Good morning, time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz. This time we would like to see masculine cards that feature:- 


When I saw the title of the new challenge, I knew straight away that I should give some love to a very old Hobby Art stamp that's been in my stash for over 10 years and hasn't been used much at all! 

I bought it because of the subject matter and have used it for a couple of the OHs birthday cards but I think this is the first time since it's first inking that I've used it for a winter scene. 
I first stamped my image with Altenew's Obsidian Pigment ink on some textured off white card, as I wanted to watercolour the image. The colours were washed in and then when dry a fine mist of white gouache was added with an old toothbrush to suggest snow and then the panel was cut using an MFT die. 
My panel was then added to a matching top fold card and the Uniko sentiment added in Industrial Graphite ink. I hope we don't have snow like this this winter!

So that's it from me but if you do need more inspiration then why not check out the rest of the team here. We're looking forward to seeing your makes in our gallery.
