With this fabulous stamp set I decided to create a cute little scene!  I free cut the hills and then paper pierced the top of the hills.  I also cut the grass and sun without a die!  I think I need to get a couple of dies...lol.  The sky was sponged on using distress ink - Tumbled Glass.  I decided to add some texture to the sheep instead of just coloring them in with Copics.  I used Fun Flock.  To get the added depth and tufts of fur I added multi layers of the flock.  I just let in dry in between layers.  Turned out pretty good!  I hope you're enjoying our sneak peeks so far!!  Have a great day!
