This is for TLC106 to used frayed ribbon. I thought it would be fun to make a little field of grass out of frayed grosgrain. I stamped my little cow with stazon and painted with creamy caramel and basic brown. I sketched my tree, painted with creamy caramel and then used a mini tipped sponge applicator to dot on celery and olive leaves. I know....it's not the mini fern stamp. I used the cloud template and a sponge to apply bashful blue for the sky and banana for a little sunny look in the clouds. I used celery grosgrain but drug it across old olive to add color after I frayed it. I cut the little fringes to make the grass look uneven and natural. I cut a frame out of Chocolate chip, aged it with deckle scissors, added texture to it with my rice baggie and mounted over the scene with mounting tape.

What an udderly adorable cow! (Sorry- couldn't help it!) Love this little scene! You did a fabulous job with the frayed ribbon, and I love the dimension of your distressed frame, too! Altogether, a really special card! TFS!
