Gossip Mongers!

Today's card was done for the Try a New Technique challenge. We had to emboss and then watercolor inside. I really wanted to try my new Punny Farm that I got from MFT a while ago, and thought I would do something w/ Roll, roll roll in the hay which is one of the sentiments from Twisted Sentiments also from MFT. But, then I spied Good Gossip and thought of Charlotte's Web where the two cows were good friends, and thought that would be a perfect card. I remembered that I had paper that was from a pack of paper on clearance at Scrapbook Station, and it's just a field w/ blue skies and a rainbow. Like, how in the heck would I ever use that paper??? Well, I found a use! I have the rest of the sheet as well as another whole sheet! So, if anyone would like to recreate this card, I would be more than happy to share! LOL!

Anyway, I stamped the cows in Black craft ink on watercolor paper. I covered in clear embossing powder (or e.p.) and then took some of my watercolor crayons and colored in the one cow w/ Creamy Caramel and Choc. Chip. The other cow has Close to Cocoa spots. I cut the tail off and moved it to the other side of her body so it wasn't like looking at the same cow twice.

For the cloud, all I did was draw the cloud w/ a silver gel pen. Then I stamped Good Gossip in Night of Navy craft ink and then cover w/ clear e.p. on watercolor paper. I took Bashful Blue crayon and colored the outer edges of the cloud. I took my aquapainter and filled it in and made it look light and airy. I popped the girls and the cloud up on pop up dots.

Thanks for stopping!

Happy Stamping!!!
