Striped Cows

First - please be sure to scroll down to my Friday post to see my Blog Candy offering - be sure to comment on that post by Wednesday 10 PM to have a chance to win!
We had a fun Inspiration Challenge on Saturday over at Split Coast. Anne (Itsapassion) was guest hosting for Stef and she chose the Cow Parade to give us as our inspiration. I chose the cow below - the Striped cow!
I cut 1/4 inch strips of different colored card stock for my background stripes and used lots of punches and nestabilities. They are all popped up on dimensionals. I outline dotted pretty much everything (thanks to Markie's mom on SCS I'm now addicted to spots - she uses them on all of her cards!)
I didn't stripe my cows as I was going crazy enough doing all the tiny dots - so I just made each cow a colored stripe! I used my Prismacolor markers to color them and for the outlining dots.
Stamps: Spotted Longhorns: Maui Cow
Paper: PapertreyInk White, So saffron, basic black, Cameo Corl, Taken with Teal, Bashful Blue, Purely Pomegranate
Ink: Pitch Black: Adirondack
Accessories: dimensionals, Fiskars Glue pen, nestability petite ovals, prismacolor markers, computer generated sentiment, word punch, circle punch, tag punch
