Building a Stamped Scene…Way to Goat Card

I started with Stampin’ Up’s “Way to Goat” stamp set…link:

On a piece of watercolor paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4″, I stamped the goats using Gina K’s Amalgam Black Ink, then used clear embossing powder and heat set the images.

I stamped “Way to Goat” on a piece of scrap white cardstock and cut it out using a Spellbinders small die I was given, that originated with their small die of the month club. (Sorry, I don’t know the name of the set.)

I used Hero Arts County Fair stamp set for the farm from the July 2018 month kit. I used the fence from this set as well.

Last stamp set used is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, called Trees. Sorry, I gave the incorrect title twice….geez, I’m sorry.. Link:

I used watercolor markers from Stampin’ Up and Stabilo 68 pens. I bought a ceramic chicken at a garage sale that I’m using for mixing marker colors. I mixed a lot of gray colored markers to paint the goats, and basically, used the other colors as is, to paint the background.

To paint the green grass, I used a Stampin’ Up marker and used it to paint some lines in the grassy area, then used a wet brush from Grace Art. Link: I used the wet brush to liquefy the marker to make the grass color. I did the same with a blue marker for the sky.

I used a piece of darker blue cardstock to line the front of the card, so cut it to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and then lined both with foam tape from the Dollar Tree and laid them on a card base that was cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. I used the die from Spellbinders to make the sentiment look like a prize you’d win at the county fair. I cut two “legs” out of the same blue cardstock I lined the card front with, and put it on foam tape from the Dollar Tree and laid it over the tree area of the card.
