Party Cow

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Come join our monthly challenge...and you could be the next winner of two High Hopes Stamps of your choice.  The details for the January Challenge - "Anything Goes" can be found here

As promised, I have another birthday card to hopefully inspire you today!

This is Party Cow (S114), party hat, and Celebrate (E052) sentiment.  This Party Cow stamp is just sooo adorable!  I think this birthday card will be perfect for my dad (who is a dairy farmer), and has a birthday coming up next month.   However, this card could be used for a variety of occasions other than just a birthday.

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I fussy cut the cow.  I also coloured the party hat stamp and fussy cut it out too. 

The barbed wire fence die is from MFT, using brown and grey cardstock.  I wanted to have party cow in a pasture-like setting, just dancing around!  That's probably not something you see everyday!!!  SU Basic Black Cardstock was used for the card base.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug-Goal 6x6 paper pad.  The party hat was glued to the cow's head, then foam tape was used under the entire image to give it some dimension.  For the sentiment, it was stamped with a versamark ink pad then heat embossed using black embossing powder.  To complete this card, a bunch of YNS-Glitter Black Gumdrops were added on the top right and bottom left corners.  
Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - 491, N60, N15, N35, N55, 942, 761, 277, 126, 133 and 800.  Versamark Ink Pad and Black Embossing Powder.
PaperDoodlebug - Goal 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Soft Suede, Going Grey, Black & White Cardstock.
Misc - MFT - Barbed Wire Fence Die, YNS-Glitter Black Gumdrops, Water Brush, Foam Tape, and Glue Dots.
