It’s Easter this weekend and I thought I should at least get one bunny, chick or lamb project done before it passes. So I settled on a lamb and transformed Christine You Got This from Stamp Anniething. Special thank you to Ann for the stamp! The sentiment is from a Polka Dot Pals set.
At first I wasn’t sure how to color this cutie but then found inspiration in my daughter’s latest drawing and took it from there.
I stamped the character without the original face and wiped off the ink before stamping it. This gave me a blank canvas to play with. I started out with W1 and started to sketch out the face and lay down my shadows. Then I built upon that with W3 and finally jumping to W8 before working my way back blending as I go.
With the face and hair done, it was time to think about the clothing. However, I wasn’t sure what color so I skipped this and went on to the background. This part stumped me and I wasn’t sure what to do. I stewed about it for a few hours and came back later in the evening with the farm idea and a bright yellow sunset.
As you can see, I really did leave the clothing until last and it wasn’t until this point that I decided I should bring in some blue. I first had to fix my little mistake with her hair clip and then pressed on. After all was done, I placed it on a card, stamped the sentiment then used Liquid Pearls and a white gel pen to add some flowers.
“Baa-ram-ewe, baa-ram-ewe. To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true. Sheep be true. Baa-ram-ewe.” Thanks for stopping by!
