Don't Panic Mr Mainwaring!

When I first checked Mandi and Chrissie's challenge blog on Saturday morning, I can't deny I was a little panic stricken!  The challenge this week on Less is More is Doodling.  For a perfectionist with mild OCD (lol) this was a big ask.  Added to that the fact that it's one layer week; I thought this week's challenge would beat me.  However, the idea for my card came to me on Saturday night and I made my card last night; my quickest LIM card to date!

Stamp: Papermania Honey & Hugs Sheep stamp
Ink: Black Stazon
Other: Chalks, white flock

The photo's not the greatest quality, but I was really pleased with how my 'clouds' turned out.  I made a cloud shaped mask and then chalked over the image with cotton wool balls to make the clouds; subtle but effective me thinks. I just couldn't bring myself to handwrite the sentiment so that's computer generated!  My doodles are the fence, the grass tufts and the birds in flight.  The card was for our friends to say thank you for a great day we spent on their sheep farm last week.
