Black Sheep

I was able to participate in the Limited Supplies Challenge today on SCS. The challenge was limited to using shades of black and white only. In the instructions she mentioned that since it is the end of March comes and like a lion and out like a lamb, she used the lamb for the color choices. We were not limited to using a lamb image but since I recently found this cute little Studio G stamp at Michael's  I wanted to use it. As soon as I thought about black and white and sheep I thought of doing a black sheep somehow. Of course now, I  have "Black Sheep of the Family" by Hank Williams Jr. running through my head (and now you do too, right?). I stamped my little sheep in a straight line and then used white applique on two of them and black liquid applique on the last one. The black sheep is also sporting some black glitter from Doodle Bug in her coat, I sprinkled the glitter on before I used my heat gun to set the liquid applique. to make my black sheep stand out a little more, I used a different patterned paper under that sheep and used my Stampin Up photo corner punch to emphasize it a little more. I then used a white gel pen to make little dots on my photo corners. The sentiment stamp I bought at Big Lots a long time ago and Big Lots is the only info on it. All paper is DCWV.

Gina - that sentiment goes so well with the Black Sheep. Excellent job. I like how you kept the applique curly instead of making it solid looking.

This is really cute and I like the sentiment too. Perfect for the card. I just wish the saying about "in like a lion, out like a lamb" was true this March. Here in Kansas March came in like a lion and like a lion!
