A few new release projects

Hello!
I hope you've all seen the New release post and Challenge 6 post, both just before this one!
Below I am sharing the details on 3 cards I made using the new releases.

I have been wanting to combine these baby farm animals for a long time and knew I had to wait until I had the cow.
This is how it looked on my Word document for printing.
I placed the piglet first, then the cow, then the horse and finally the goat.   It took quite some time to color, but I just am so happy with the end result!


Here is the finished card:


For the grass in the bottom right corner, I just used the writing tip of the Tombow marker and made clumps of grass blades with it to fill the area. Then I lightly (with light water flow) brushed over the clumps in up and down strokes with the waterbrush. I waited for that to dry completely and then used the writing tip again to make blades of grass again over top everything. After all that, I wanted the grass to match the grass under the horse, so I used my Zig Millenium fineliner to draw just a few grass clumps in there.

SUPPLIES:
  • IMAGES: Baby Cow, Baby Horse, Precious Piglet and Baby Goat from Doodle Pantry
  • CS/PAPER: 90 lb. watercolor paper, CDS spring leaf, CDS mud pie, CDS cream soda
  • INK: printer, Tombow markers 850, 912, 491, 098, 177, 990, 992, 947, 899, 977, 985, 946, black zig millenium
  • ACCENTS/TOOLS: waterbrush, border punch, glue dots, CDS mud pie ribbon, button, thread, sewing machine

Next card I couldn't believe I didn't sew!  I wanted to, but decided to resist it as sort of a challenge to myself... I needed to see if I could make a card without sewing on it and still like the outcome, LOL!   I actually like it.  It's on the simpler side.  I used some matching digi paper that comes with the Nutty for you set.

  • INK: color printer

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally I had to color the Spring Song Birdies.  I just got this Basic Grey Hopscotch paper last weekend and was itching to do some cute springy card with it.
They were a tad bit tedious to color, but SOOOO much fun!
