FM197 My Silly Party Animal Challenge

Chinese New Year is on February 19, and this year is the Year of the Goat.  In honor of the Chinese New Year, I've got a weird Friday Mashup challenge for you.  Create a project with a farm animal and add some party bling.  The bling can be glitter, glimmer paper, sequins, shiny layers, anything.  Sounds impossible, right?  That's the fun part of these mashup challenges; you end up with something you would have never thought up otherwise!  ;)  Oh, and bonus points if your project has a goat.  So play along with the party animals!

Here I got to do some old-fashioned watercoloring.  It's been a loonnnnggg while.  I attempted a barnyard scene with the red barn background.  What do you think?  Does it work?

For bling, I have glitter, sequins, gold foil, and rhinestones.  Could be a party.

This is so cute. I just love this stamp set. I also love the use of the fringed scissors for the added grass. Great idea!
