Collaboration Blog Hop with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Is there any sweeter image in the world than a shepherd and his flock?

When I saw this stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps, I knew the answer was a resounding no, because this is pretty much the cutest thing ever.

I stamped the image in Fadeout Ink onto cold-press watercolor paper and then painted it with Daniel Smith watercolor. I had originally had a grand vision of painting plowed fields in the distance, but I lost my nerve after I finished painting the image, because I was afraid I'd ruin it, and I enjoyed painting it so much. 

First, I stamped the little lamb at his feet in Fadeout Ink, and then stamped it again on masking paper, and cut out the right side of the image and placed the mask on top of him. Then I stamped the shepherd on top of that image so that it looked like the lamb was resting against his legs on top of his robe. 

Then I painted the image with Daniel Smith Watercolor, and on his robe I painted one section at a time so that I could preserve the dimension and shadow in this lovely image. When I was done, I stamped the sentiment from this little greeting set - the font is so clean and you get SO many sentiments at such an economical price. What I love about Korin's stamps is they are overwhelmingly positive and encourage. She's just a great lady, and it's an honor to collaborate with her.
This is what the rest of the set looks like - I love the heart image so much!! Those distant hills are sort of what I had in mind for my background. All the images just squeeze my heart!
