Spots & Stripes at Crafting with Dragonflies

Our theme this fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies, chosen by teammate Helen, is Spots & Stripes.

I recently won a gift certificate Bugaboo Stamps for participating in the "A Stitch in Time" challenge at Crafting by Designs, and I could hardly wait to use their cute Birthday Ewe Circle Sentiment. I printed it twice on white & on orange & green papers. I fussy-cut the pieces to create a layered look. I decorated the Ewe with flocking & Flowersoft. I colored the image with Copic markers & covered the balloons with Glossy Accents.

The card is made from orange & green linen papers. I created the edge with fringe scissors. I decorated the front with heat-activated puff paint to create a sheep-like dotted background.

The balloon was made with Fuse paper, a piece of page protector plastic, and my Fuse tool. I filled it with plastic confetti.
