Well I had so much fun making this card! The special lady who asked for it for her husband wanted something along the lines of what he likes, and since he was a sheep farmer I thought this stamp would be PERFECT for their Golden Wedding Anniversary ...
... its from a clear set of stamps called Wooly Greetings available from Woodware Stamps and I have used them so many times for friendship and other cards but this has to be a first for Wedding Anniversary.
The sheep image was stamped on paper and used as a mask and then gold ink added with a sponge dauber afterwards, as you can see below:
The punching is done with a Martha Stewart punch and the layers stuck on with foam pads for added depth, and here's another view so you can see the layers:
I hope this leads me (and anyone else browsing) to use your stamps for occasions you never thought you would use them for!
