A card for a vendor friend of mine who tirelessly worked with one of my more "high end" clients on their big trade show. The show theme? Time to Meet Your New Cash Cow...that's right, we had huge 10' long inflatable cows hanging from the ceiling! It was quite a sight! This was the perfect image and sentiment for her thank you card.
This is another retired SU! set, that I don't actually own, but my good friend (who happens to live next store and be my stamping buddy) does! "Bessie" is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with SU! markers. I also masked the image and very lightly added some Bashful Blue and Saraha Sand ink to the background. The floral and grey papers are from Basic Grey. I created the large scalloped rectangle by punching out four rectangles with my Marvy Giga punch and overlapping them until I had the right size for the image. Because the background paper has a pattern to it, you can't even see the seams. I then pierced each scallop for a little extra something. The BG paper is mounted onto a burgandy paper that was run through my Cuttlebug and very lightly rubbed with a silver ink. The entire piece is mounted on a Sahara Sand pre-folded card that has been stamped with a canvas background. Three black brads and a small piece of light pink ribbon were added for some extra "umph."
