Easter Lamb – See the Whole Flock!

  IMG_6637Such a darling Easter Lamb!  I just couldn’t get enough of this sweet stamp!  So I created a whole flock of sheep starting with this simple card  “Lamby” was stamped with black Staz-On ink (to keep the water coloring from smearing the ink).  The paper was regular white cardstock, 3 3/4″ x 5″, but you can use water color paper if you prefer.   I water colored  a light blue sky, added tiny pearls to his fleece, and used a marker to add pink cheeks and ears, black hooves, and green grass.  The corners were punched with the Curvy Three Corner Punch with a pearl accent on each corner.  I mounted the lamb piece on a  light blue 4″ x 5 1/4 ” cardstock (Pool Party) with pop dots (Stampin’ Dimensionals) and adhered to the front of a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base. The next lamb was the perfect addition to a bakery treat bag!  The stamping and coloring was exactly the same .  I cut out the lamb with the dIMG_6632ecorative label framelit, then added a small punched butterfly with pearl accents.  Since the next size of framelits in the decorative label set was too big, I just traced around the outside of the same framelit and cut it out by hand to give me a backing for the lamb label.  It’s a great trick that works with any framelits when you need a 1/8″ contrasting border to back a stamped image.  Of course I used pop dots to attach everything – the more layers, the better!  Patterned paper covers the front of the bag and Cucumber dotted lace ribbon ties the bag shut and serves as an accent under the label. The best part is what’s hidden inside!  What are you hoping for?  Yum! There’s one more lamb in this flock so stay tuned!
