Red Road Apples

It is the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, so you would think I would make a Thanksgiving card to post today.  Nope, I pull out a Christmas image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and start to make something with it.  The stamp is a Holstein cow shown from the backside…………..not the back side…………the backside.    It is not as easy as one would think to colour a Holstein cow.  It is a black and white image on white cardstock, so there is not a lot going on.  Luckily the cow is wearing a Santa hat and has a ribbon tied to her tail that I coloured in traditional red.  Design theory states that the “eye” prefers things in odd numbers.  That meant that I needed a third touch of the red to appease the “eye” gods.  Because the image shows the backside of the cow front and centre, I decided to get my third pop of red from a trail of red “road apples”.   I am still wondering why I can’t see the “udder” piece of anatomy in this image, but with this image view, I am sure glad the Holstein is not a bull.   Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians.
