Rare Breeds

Good Morning everyone.

Today im sharing a birthday card i made for one of my brothers birthdays.  On his farm he likes to work with rare breeds and has been a little part of a revival in a few of them. His dairy herd is a mixed bag of breeds and his 2 donkeys like to run with the herd too.  He has just taken on 2 pigs of a lesser breed.  

This lot of Katzelkraft farm animals sure are a mixed bunch and very rare indeed with the lilac & green cow, purple pig and orange yellow donkey.  Mr Cockeral is a bit hyper and into everything and the lime, orange & pink duck has just lost the plot😁  

7x7 scalloped card blank.  On a piece of white card i stamped out my animals, i didn't bother masking them as knew i would be decoupaging the front ones so that would hide any overlapped stamping.  I also stamped out the cow, pig and duck onto another piece of card.
 I coloured them all simply with distress oxide inks. I then cut out the extra ones. 
I mounted my topper onto black cardstock and added a die cut white frame with foam tape.  

I cut a piece of white card smaller than my cardfront and embossed with a hessian effect embossing folder and lightly inked over the top with pale blue ink, i then attached to black card and my card base. 

I then added my extra animals with glue gel with the duck right at the front out of the frame.  I computer printed my sentiment to say 'Rare Breeds.......Oh Yes Indeed'  in a funky font and cut out wonky, mounted onto black card and attached to the card front. I doodled in some borders and added glossy accents to the eyes to finish.

A close up of the motley crew.  My brother actually has geese and not ducks but no goose stamp in the set so went with the fabulous duck instead.

Items Used:
Katzelkrafts Farm animal stamp set
MFT frame die
Crafters companion hessian 8x8 embossing folder
Distress Oxide inks

Thank you all for stopping by once again, i hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Emmax

Fabulous card Emma, love all the funky, crazy creatures, your brother is going to love it. Quick question, when you colour your stamped animals with distress oxide inks what do you use? A paintbrush, waterbrush or something else? Big hugs Kirsty. x
