Celebrate National Farm Animals Day!

 Greetings! It's Kathi here to celebrate National Farm Animals Day with you! I decided to create a card with Katzelkraft's whimsically wonderful Farm Animals Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set. Now I could have used the pig, cow, sheep, chicken, rooster, or bunny, but I decided to use the donkey for snarky reasons. I paired the donkey with one of the humorous sayings from the Whatchamacallit Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set also by Katzelkraft, used a grass stamp from  Hobby Art Ltd.'s Bah Humbug Clear Polymer Stamp Set and the bell from their Get Your Goat Clear Polymer Stamp Set. The patterned kraft paper was created with the Abstract 12 Red Rubber Cling Stamp by Darkroom Door.

Here's my card.

I started the card by stamping the donkey from the Farm Animals Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set by Katzelkraft onto white cardstock and onto repositionable label paper, which was fussy-cut, and placed over its counterpart on the image panel as a mask.

A scrap of cardstock was torn and placed horizontally over the image panel. Della Blue Elements Ink by Lavinia Stamps was brushed over the cloud portion of a stencil to create a cloudy sky behind the donkey.

The top part of the image panel was covered with paper then Pine Elements Ink was brushed horizontally over the torn edge on the cardstock scrap onto the image panel to create a grassy pasture. The scrap was moved down and Pine Elements Ink was again brushed over the torn edge. This was repeated until the there were several horizontal green grassy lines across the base of the image panel. Lime Punch Elements Ink was brushed onto the grass to fill in any white space and to blend with the darker green.

The grass stamp from the Bah Humbug Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Hobby Art Ltd. was inked with Pine Elements Ink and randomly stamped onto the grassy background. Pine Elements Ink was brushed under the grass to ground it and create some shadow.

The mask was lifted and retained for another use. The donkey was colored with Copic markers. White gel pen was used to add catchlights to his eyes. 

The bell from the Get Your Goat Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Hobby Art Ltd. was stamped with Copic friendly ink onto a scrap of white cardstock, fussy-cut, colored with Copic markers, and edged with a black pen. A stabby tool was used to pierce the bell hanger and to add a hole to the right side of the donkey's neck. Red thread was threaded through the hole, across the donkey's neck, and through the hole in the bell hanger.

The image panel was edged with  Pine and Della Blue Elements Inks using Blenders by Lavinia Stamps

Paprika Elements Inks by Lavinia Stamps was used to ink the Abstract 12 Red Rubber Cling Stamp by Darkroom Door which was stamped onto both sides of a kraft panel. The panel was then edged with Paprika Elements Ink using a Blender by Lavinia Stamps and adhered to a 5 x 7 kraft card.

Paprika Elements Ink was used to ink a sentiment stamp from the Whatchamacallit Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set  by Katzelkraft, which was stamped onto kraft cardstock, die-cut, then edged with the same ink.

The image panel was adhered to the card, then the sentiment die-cut was adhered to finish the card.
