I think Maribelle has got to be Absolutely the Cutest Cow...and she is super fast to color.....I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and a bit of twinkling h20's to deepen the shade a bit. Acrylic white paint is what I use for the white dots.I have added an extra bell and tuff of hair to Mariebelle....only raising them both up partially for dimension. Maribelle and the sentiment and the whole panel are raised with pop dots. I added gold stickles to the bell.
The borders on the outside are actually gingham fabric ...I cut them in strips and sewed them down to the front CS using the zig zag stitch....so easy.....I thought I might have a problem but it sewed through perfectly! I then glued on the corners.....which is just a little distressed square of red cs in which I have attached the flowers with a brad. I used a border punch for the layer in the back of the image.
