Happy Sheep

Happy New Year! I resolve to make better cards this year, so please let me know how this card can be better :) First step is to follow along with more challenges and get inspired by different layouts and techniques.

A fun, new product for me is liquid applique! I had seen "snow" on a lot of Christmas cards and now I can create snow too <insert evil cackle>, but first... sheep:

It's great fun heating up the liquid applique and seeing it puff up! I can't stop running my hands over the "wool". And, I've already prepped extra wooly sheeps for future cards...

The sheep is from Hero Arts' Happy Day Animals (CL153), which must be a super-old stamp set because it's not sold at a lot of places. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn's So Much To Say, which I love for the variety of sentiments.

My layout, color, and general idea really, came from Your Next Stamp's sketch and color challenge #55. There are sheep in the inspiration photo!!

I am submitting this to:
SSS Monday Challenge: Start Afresh (liquid applique)
SSS Wednesday Challenge: New Something (liquid applique)
SSS Work it Wednesday: Something new (liquid applique)
A Blog Named Hero: New To Me (still liquid applique)
YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #55

Thanks for stopping by!
