Hello everyone. Welcome to this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. The theme for the week is "On the Farm" and was selected by my beautiful design team sister, Krista! Not being a back to nature kind of woman, I struggled a bit with the challenge (hence the name - CHALLENGE!). But in the end I thought about those fabulous Scottish sheep and that made me think of Mary! You know Mary... She had a little lamb... Oh Mary! Everywhere that Mary went.... well you know Mary so you know the rest of her story! And yes Krista! I am convinced that Mary must have lived on a farm!
I welded the word phrase and the icon image together to create this card. I also welded the shadows of these to cuts. I then cut the two cuts separately in different prints and solids and pieced together my card front.
I used Close to My Heart cardstock - all of the cardstock came from the Pemberley paper pack (# X7148B which retails for $9.95). The Pemberley paper pack includes 12 sheets of matching/coordinating cardstock - 6 prints and 6 solids. I love the colors in the Pemberley pack. (And too, I like the name Pemberley. For those readers of the classics you know that Pemerley was the estate of Mr. Darcy in Jane Austen's fabulous Pride and Prejudice)!
Back to the card: I used micro tipped scissors and hand cut the floral embellishments from a printed sheet of Pemberley cardstock. I added a glue dotted button to the center of each floral embellish. After a few Copic marker touch ups (Mary's skin tone and hair as well as the lamb's fleece) and some doodles, matted Mary on two colors of Pemberley cardstock before adding her to a Pemberley cardstock blue card.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please do go by BBTB2 and check out the FAB projects some of my nature lover design team sisters created. I was in awe when I took a pre-post sneak peek!
