Can you stand another cow card?

I can't help it...I keep grabbing for the Very Punny set and when I do, it's usually the cute cow stamp I use! I also wanted to play with my new Polka Dots & Paisley set so I thought I'd create a background to look like the pattern you would see on a bandanna. I used Buckaroo Blue (sticking with my cow poke theme! ;-) and white craft ink to stamp the background. Then, with a Brocade Blue marker, I inked just the little flower from the middle of the paisley. I stamped those as a filler. I used the white gel pen to dot the center of these flowers and the Brocade Blue pen to dot the centers of the flowers inside the Paisley.

I water colored the cows and the background using my aqua painter and water color pencils. While the bottom was still wet, I took one swipe across with my Speckled roller inked in basic brown to create the dirt and rocks. I think my favorite part of this card is the tiny cow bell attached to the red gingham. I'm glad I remembered I had a few of those left in my stash from my wood crafting days.

I got some new stamps on Wednesday! I mounted most of them this morning I hope to find some time in between other stuff to do a little stamping. I LOVE new stamps! Do I really need to do laundry and clean the house???
