Wild cows?

It's Kathy's turn to set the dare over at DCM this week. The dare is titled Where the Wild Things Are and Kathy wanted our cards to feature animals.

This may not be quite what she had in mind but I have to say that after a nasty incident in her teens, my mum still refuses to walk across a field that has more than two cows in it - she'd certainly put them in the wild beast category!



I made this little notecard by stamping Bossy the Cow directly onto a slightly textured card blank. She's coloured with Prismacolor pencils blended with Sansodor and I've added a few little daisies, including one for her to chew on; I used a Souffle pen to make the stem nice and opaque. MOO! is stamped separately and cut out so that it stands out just a tiny bit from the card. Knotted gingham finishes it off.

Supplies: Bossy the Cow by Cornish Heritage Farms, See-D Typewriter alphabet, daisy from Woodware Tiny Phrases set, Clearsnap Azurite chalk ink, Ranger archival jet black, various Prismacolor pencils and Sansodor, Sakura Souffle pen, gingham ribbon from stash.
