On My Farm...
Howdie... (Farmers terminology right??) Todays post is to tell you all about the new Challenge at All Dressed Up Blog. It is always an Anything Goes theme as long as you use an All dressed up image. I have used an image called On my Farm
There was a little irony around the creation of this card as I had spent all day in the Garden putting horse manure on the flower beds so I did smell a bit like I'd been down on the Farm! Don't worry I did shower before I put my grubby hands on my precious paper stash!!
Speaking of paper - How ace is this perfectly plaid paper from Lawn Fawn!! They are all so bright and lush!! I teamed it with a strip of Country Fair green paper from My Favourite Things to mirror the grass. (These two companies can do no wrong in my opinion at the moment.)
I used a Lawn Fawn Die called "Inside out diagonal stitched Square" to cut the image out and mounted each layer onto Black bazzill.
I die cut a flower using Marianne Design and glued a pearl to the middle. The two smaller flowers are sequins from Doodlebug which I glued a gem to the middle of. I also die cut some clouds (I can't remember what brand they are ... Sorry. I normally write it on the back but haven't on these.) which I stuck to the card to overhang the image and then added a bright yellow button to represent the sun. Finally I used a little silver pen to highlight the wheels and grill on the tractor.
I used these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Sky - Powder blue with lots of blender pen.
Wooden fence and carts - Caramel, Cocoa & Raw Sienna.
Pig - Blossom, Baby pink & Antique Pink.
Chicken - Poppy & Yellow.
Tractor - Yellow, Gold & Sleigh bells.
Grass - Leaf Green & Pressed leaf.
Tyre's - Black, Cool greys 3,4 & 5
Cow & Sheep's face - Ice Greys 3, 4 &5
I hope you like how My Farm turned out - it looks pretty idyllic but I reckon the manure is just out of shot!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Thanks for visiting and Im looking forward to seeing all your creations entered into the Challenge.
