Father’s Day Cow

July 14, 2017

I made this card for my father for Father’s Day. He is a dairy farmer and loves Brown Swiss cows.



Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began with this card by creating a card base from water color paper. Using my acrylic block, I ink smooshed some yellows and greens on the card base. I used a wet paintbrush to move the color around a bit.

While the card base was drying, I stamped the cow on another scrap of water color paper and used Distress Inks to water color it in. Once dry, I fussy cut the cow out and painted the edges.

I stamped the sentiment on the same scrap of water color paper and trimmed it out. I adhered both the cow and the sentiment with foam tape.

Stamps Used: Lala Land’s Cow’s It Going

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks (I did not write down which colors I used)


Hope you enjoyed the card
