Valentine Cow

If you look close at all the markings on this cow from Eureka you’ll notice they are hearts…perfect for a Valentine but it also will work for the everyday card.
I used Copic markers to color the images: cow – 100,110,C7, C2,1,0,00, R81,83, flowers - E25,27, Y35,38, grass and stems and leaves – G07,09,28
The clouds were created with a sponge and my hand cut template, here’s a direct link to a free pattern. I did a drag motion starting on the template and dragging off onto the cardstock. It’s such a quick way to add a sky to the scene.
If you look at the cow image linked below you’ll notice there are just stems in the mouth, I used a stamp positioner to aid in stamping on the blooms. I masked off the rubber image to ink up just the bloom I wanted to stamp.
I used the Perfect Layers tools from Perfect Paper Crafting to cut the even layers.
Scor-Pal was used to emboss between the outside black border and Martha Stewart punched border.
The sentiment is a digital image cut out with Stampin Up’s Word Window punch.

The border punch is from Martha Stewart.
