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.
