* Crafts Galore Encore: Merry Cow


It's September and here, in the north of England, summer is coming to a close. We can look forward to the beautiful autumnal colours and crisp, dewy mornings. 

September brings a new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore. The theme is always 'Anything Goes' and we would love for you to join in!

This month we are sponsored by the fabulous Fabrika Fantasy and the lucky winner will get to choose 3 digi images from the store.

I was lucky to get a digi to work with and I chose Merry Cow. Here is my card:

Merry Cow makes me smile! 
She is coloured with Copic markers and given white Posca pen highlights. She has been fussy cut and popped on foam tape.
The background is Dylusions acrylic paint, applied in smooth strokes with a baby wipe. I used white paint and a blender sponge to stencil the border using a Dylusions stencil. I decided to outline the pattern with a black fine-liner pen. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and white paint in the centre.
I added a torn strip of washi tape to ground Merry Cow. The lovely sentiment, outlined in black fine-liner pen, is from Tim Holtz's Small Talk. Finally, I added three white mulberry flowers.

Many thanks to Dmitry from Fabrika Fantasy for generously sponsoring this challenge and offering three digis to the winner.

I hope you'll pop to over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DT's wonderful designs. 
We'd love to see your creations. 

Remember the challenge is always 'Anything Goes' and so you can create any type of project - it doesn't have to be a card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
