Ewe're the best! -- Pilin' on the Puns and Plaid

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Humor/Puns and/or Plaid. The only really rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge. We're sponsored by Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, and I used his Pride and Joy digi stamp.


The image was colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and placed onto a photo background that I got from a magazine. The border was made with a cork sheet & a QuicKutz die. The mats and base card are cut from the backing paper that came with the cork sheet! I've had this plaid DP in my stash forever, and it was perfect for this project. I made the silly sentiment & backed it with some wood tape. I didn't do anything to the wood veneer embellishments, except for putting a bit of wood tape behind the star, because I thought it would distract. I used a ZIG glue pen to add white flocking to the sheep.


Inspiration/Challenges:
Dare2BArtzy: Lots of Layers
Die Cut Divas: For the love of animals + die cuts
The Male Room: Wood from my Stash
Shopping Our Stash #294: Mostly green
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Bit O' Green
Sketch-Tanten (Sketch Aunts) Challenge #30: Sketch + Digi stamp as focal point

Thank you for visiting & inspiring my crafting! Hope you'll join us at Pile It On,
