Farm Critter Stack Card

I have had this stamp for several years; isn’t it hilarious? I often use it with friendship sentiments, I mean, you have GOT to be a GOOD friend to be the guy on the bottom! This is also for Skipping Stones Designs Sketch Challenge. I haven’t found the money yet to buy any stamps YET but I hope to soon. They have a great sense of humour so I hope they appreciate this card!

I coloured this with Copics, no picture but I wrote down the colour numbers. E04, 31, 33, 35, 49 W1, 3, 5 YR4, 16, 21, 23, 38, R37, 59, 81, 83 Background BG10 B12 YG67 G21. I used the airbrush with a hand cut cloud template to do the sky. The grass tufts are hand drawn but I wasn’t stuck on the way the ones in the bottom right looked so I stuck the button over top. The twine is wavy because it is really a three strand jute cord pulled apart into its individual strands because it was too thick otherwise.

This was a really fun sketch. I’m not sure how much time there is to play because it was posted last Tuesday but I know I am going to keep it in my files to use again. OH and I forget to add, yes, I drew in the chicken footprints!

Enjoy, Rebecca

I am from Bremen and the friendship card reminds me of the Bremen Town Musicians, the fairy tale by the brothers Grimm. It is like the B-team :-D
