Polkadoodles - Highland cow

There is a new challenge in blogland Polkadoodles. They have some very talented artists on the DT - worth having a look. A setch challenge this week and a magnificent prize.
Since I do love a good doodle here is my entry.....
This Highland cow is from a lovely drawing by my sister-in-law Daisy Phillips and I have converted it into a cutting file on my Pazzles. Daisy was part of the family camp out in our back garden this weekend. Scottish weather aside a great time was had by all - but I don't recomend 11 people (8 adults &3 children) with one toilet......
Cow is cut using DCWV photographic straw paper & Basic Grey ambrosia paper. Doodles on top of cow using white and black Sakura.
A4 Kanban Card base - I do like working this big!
Pearlescent reddish brown paper hand cut wavy edge - folded corner secured with eyelet through some grungeboard painted with crackle paint.
Oval matts behind cow Basic Grey Ambrosia and Bazzil embossed swirl papers.
Vertical stripe of swirl grungeboard painted with H2O's.
Horizontal stripe pearlescent green vellum.
Oval cluster using basic grey papers, bazzil embossed paper and grungeboard. Secured layers with eyelets and stuck down with DST.
Flower again made with grungeboard.
Sentiment doodled with Sakura...............
