The Black Sheep


Here is another card I made with Fleece Navi-baa.  Coloring just the one little sheep black among all the others (who is also facing the other way, going against the grain) really emphasizes the point: Baa humbug!  They're all so cute that sentiment can't even bring you down!  Add just a touch of gray pencil to the whiteys to set them off from the white background and the little shadows underneath all blended with a waterbrush really adds dimension.

Supplies:  Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx, and Moonlit Fog cardstock, Gina K. Black Onyx Premium Dye ink, Faber-Castell neutral watercolor pencils, water brush, Spectrum Noir red and green markers, Gina K. black stitched ribbon and red bakers twine

Are you the black sheep in your family?  Time to embrace it!  Cast off old labels and celebrate your uniqueness. :)  There's a reason you're so different from everyone else. ;)
