This is for the WT98 challenge to use sanding blocks. I decided to use a chipboard tag to paint a little cow and pasture scene on so I could sand the edges. I started by using my craft spots to apply celery and bashful ink direct to the chipboard. I dried with the heat gun. I stamped the cow with black versa and painted with the black versa and white craft ink and a watercolor brush. I embossed with clear ep. I painted the little trees with chocolate chip craft and a brush and used the fern stamp with celery and olive craft to create the leaves. I painted the little fence with black versa and a small brush and embossed with clear ep. I used a brush to paint in olive grass springs along the grass line and then used the fern stamp to fill in the grass. Embossed again. I used a sponge dauber to apply white craft for the sky and a little yellow for the sun. Embossed again. I had to emboss between each step so the ink wouldn't dry. AFter I got this huge tag made I didn't know what do with it to attach to a card. I finally decided to make a 5 1/2 by 6 card and attach like a little picture on some Wild Asparagus card stock.
