New High Hopes Image: Takin' a Break (Part 2)

Hello and Happy Friday!  This week one of my great friends (also she was my Maid of Honor) celebrated her 40th Birthday.  We met in High School, we share the same name with the same rare spelling and we both LOVE cows -  and this is the card that I made for her....
 I know what you are thinking, hey she used this image already- well yes I did and I just wanted to show you that not every cow has to be black & white.  At the end of the post I will show you my two "Takin' A Break" cards side by side so that you can see that this image is so easily used with different colours and that they look completely different.

Here is a look at the inside of the card....
 Supplies Used:
* Image:  High Hopes Stamps, Takin' A Break
* Inside Sentiment:  High Hopes Stamps, Thinking of You & Smiling
* Inside HB Sentiment:  High Hopes Stamps, Bold Happy Birthday
* Copic Xpress It Cardstock
* Copic Sketch Markers
* Spellbinders: Labels 8
* Memento Inks: Rich Cocoa (stamped the cow & HB) & Rose Bud
* Distress Inks: Vintage Photo
* 3D Pop Dots
* Papers:  Carta Bella 6x6 Giddy Up Boy & Girl Paper Pads
* Glue Dots

Here is a close up of this amazing cow to see the Copic colours used....
 Copic Colours Used:
* Light Brown:  E43, E42, E41, E40
* Dark Brown:  E49, E47, E44

As promised here is a look at today's card as well as my previous Takin' A Break card.  As you can see the stamp looks totally different just by changing the colours and switching the dark and light areas - this stamp is a must have for any stamper - sooooo fun to play with!....
