Today's card was created for the lastest Send A Smile 4Kids challenge. The challenge was to create a card for boys. I had recently been given some free stamp sets as a RAK from a fellow blogger (see original post here) and knew immediately when I saw this adorable image that I would have to use it for one of my cards I'm making for the Send A Smile 4Kids card drive. I started with the My Favorite Things Hay There stamp set and stamped it onto white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink. I selectively masked off the pigtails on the image so it would look like a little boy instead of a girl (truth be told I actually made two cards to look like a boy and two to look like a girl) and then created a mask using a Post-It note. I then stamped the pig and the chicken on it's back. I masked them both and stamped the haystack. I colored all of the images using my Copic markers and then added some Pebbles light blue pan pastel chalk to create the sky in the background. I cut my panel down and matted it using some black cardstock and then cut down some of the patterned papers from American Crafts Heartland Farm 6x6 paper pad and matted it out onto some more black cardstock and mounted it all flush onto my white card base. This card is so sweet and simple to replicate. I hope you like it!
