I have loved the sentiment "I love ewe" placed alongside a sheep since I can remember. I don't know why but it's endearing to me. It's probably why I couldn't resist buying the sentiment from Stamping Bella along with Curly Ewe.
Stamp in hand I could't think how to color a sheep. When in doubt Google it. I found that most really aren't white, they are more dirty ivory. Armed with my favorite tan like copic shades of E44, E43, E42 and E40 I set about coloring this cutie up. First though I had to stamp him on Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Coloring this took no time at all...the layout was a different story. After many starts and stops the result finally appealed to me.
Various circle and square Nesties were used to make the many layers to the image panel. The paper is some scrap design paper I had laying around. An EK Success border bunch was used for the center white strip, I then topped that with red seam binding tape and made a nice bubbly double bow.
Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
