Missing EWE

I have been super busy with family and farm chores the last few weeks and have not been able to spend much time in my craft cave.  I was really feeling the drain due to the lack of creative time, and jumped in to make a quick card for Operation Write Home.  Latest news from OWH is they will be closing their doors as a 501C3 on August 1st.  It is good news that many of our troops are headed home.  I plan to have my box shipped before the deadline and include this fun little card in the mix.

I started with the color challenge over at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch.

The cute little sheep and sentiment are from the OWH Hero Arts Missing You set along with the Cuts die.  The sheep was stamped in Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock and then colored  with Chameleon pens.  I made small random circles with a 3 second tone using the NU1 Bisque and PK3 Bubblegum.  Then I went over the image with CB Colorless Blender.  The hooves are colored with a 5 second tone using CG8 Cool Grey.  I love the versatility of the Chameleon pens and the fact that I only need the one set to color images.  The draw back is that they work best with smaller images.

All the papers are from my scrap stash and were selected to work with the color challenge. The "Melon Mambo" was trimmed to 2" x 4 1/8" then punched with the EK success mini scallop edger punch.  The Missing EWE sentiment was first cut apart so I could use it in a straight line then stamped in Colorbox Blue Lagoon.  The "Tempting Turquoise" was trimmed to  3 1/2" x 4 1/8".  The "Daffodil Delight"  was trimmed to 5 3/8" x 4 1/8".  All the layers were adhered together with the sweet little sheep being mounted with dimensional foam adhesive.

This card was a quick creative break that took about 15 minutes to put together!  Love when things work just right, especially when I am tired.
