Moo, Moo, Moo

Hi you all! I had a fun day yesterday and the day before mooing. No, not mooing like a cow, just making moo cards - little cards sized  1.1x2.8". The challenge at Moo Mania is asking for something made with three moos, or a set of 3 this time. I love making these little things, and it is rather addictive. Getting started was easy; stopping was very hard!

The first 3 sets have been made with some scraps of marbled paper. Marbling is also something that is good, messy fun, and I had lots of narrow strips left from my last action. For this set, I have doodled round some of the splodges, and added a stamped image to the middle one. And believe me, believing in yourself is important, especially when you don't manage to get the stamp straight!

Here I have stamped the images on another piece of card, cut them out and stuck them on, more or less straight. I added a bit of colour to the stamped images with gel pens, and coloured in a few patches in the splodges to match.

Here I have stamped once onto the card and once separately, and put them on at different angles. This time intentionally!

And then I felt mooved by the word moo....this was really moovellous fun, udderly delightful.
Black and white is dominant here. The eyes have been emphasized with a drop of glossy accents.

I had great fun with these, and don't groan - there are more to come soon.
I am linking again to Simon Says stamp and show.
Have a good weekend, take care, and have fun.
Thanks for visiting, too!
