Love Ewe Greg

I recently learned about Linda McCain's Catered Crop Recipe Challenges.  Linda selects a project for inspriation, and the creator lists the ingredients used in the project.  The fun of this is that you can choose anything you like  from the designer's recipe to whip up your own creation. You choose from among the  ingredients, colors, theme, shapes, techniques, and then, add your own spice and make something completely different.

When I saw THIS post for FTR5 I instantly fell in love with the image in Denise's inspiration project, and I just had to have this adorable stamp from Unity Stamp Company.  It is the sweetest thing.  I ordered it right away, and it came on Friday, just in time for me to make valentines with it for my twin boys.  (You can view the second card that I made with this image in my post after this one.  My card  is a CASE of Denise's creation.  Thanks for the inspiration, Denise!  I love the way it came out, and it is perfect for my son.

Here are the things I chose to use from Denise's recipe:
Cardstock: red & white
Pattern Paper – repeating patterns (BasicGrey Sugar Rush)
Stamps – an image with a sheep/lamb, mother/child, and a sentiment about love (Unity Stamp Company-Love Ewe, Verve- One Hundred Hearts)
Color Mediums – Copic markers, black ink (Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine Onyx Black ink)
Tools – art sponges, scallop die cut
Embellishments – ribbon, tag
Techniques – sponging a sky
Theme – love, mother/child
Shapes – hearts and scallops
Other – a tag with a sentiment

This was fun! Looking forward to future Catered Crop Recipe Challenges.  Thanks Linda!
