Happy Hello from the Farm

I've been having more fun with the Doodle Factory images this weekend. For my first card, I went with a smaller format. Its dimensions are 3.75x5. Part of the reason for this was so I could use my mini check background stamp with ease. The card itself uses no special techniques, just your basic stamping and pencil crayon colouring. The ribbon on there comes from A Muse. I thought these chickens seemed like they'd be chirping a greeting.

On my second card, I wanted some dimension. I stamped the fence first on some cardstock. Then I went about making a mask using some post-it notes. I only have the small ones, so I had to tape 2 together. I stamped the cow, but I wanted it to be looking over the fence. So I stamped just the head on another piece of paper, coloured, and cut that out. I coloured everything else, then applied the cow head onto the image with pop dots. The card base is covered with various sized black circle punch outs. You can't really see the dimension that well on the full card photo, so here's a close-up.

Supplies for both cards:
Stamps: Doodle Factory Country, Sun Spirit Studio Sentiments, Mini Check Background (all items available from
Starving Artistamps)
Ink: Versafine Black, Whisper White
Paper: White, Black, Green, Red
Accessories, etc: various circle punches, pop dots, ribbon, pencil crayons, grey markers


  1. Super cute Natasha! I love what you did with the cow & the fence. The polka dots make a great cow background too!

  2. Those are cute, I love the dimension on the cow and the dotted background. :-)

  3. Those are great! I love how you did the cow and I can't wait to ink up my chickens!
