Happy Birthday to Moo!

Hey stampers, Anni here!

I just recently showed you two cards using Lawn Fawn's Hay There set. I can't stay away from these super cute farmyard critters, I just had to make another two cards with this set.

For today's cards I tried a new to me technique: Colouring with coloured pencils on coloured cardstock. And I have to say I really like it.

I started by die cutting two squares, one with a die from My Favorite Things' Stitched Pinking Edge Square STAX and one from Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX, also from My Favorite Things. I used grey cardstock for this.

Then I stamped the animals with My Favorite Things' Extreme Black Hybrid Ink - I love it - onto the squares and coloured them. I added some details free hand like grass and clouds.
I love how the colours show up on the cardstock and how bright they appear.

I also stamped sentiments from the Hay there set onto the squares. Then I underlayed the squares with cardstock matching the colour of my sky and added it to a cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Easter weekend.



  1. These are FAB Anni! Love how vibrant the colours look against the grey. What pencils did you use out of interest? x
